Local Living Venture

Rural Skills Building & Local Food For Local Folks

Encouraging sharing and life-long learning as part of a capable, healthy community.
We are working for regional self-reliance, energy independence, environmentally friendly living, and a regionally-oriented community. 
  What we Do  
Sharing rural simple living skills through workshops and community events, based on a neighbor to neighbor model - so many skills exist locally that others are interested in learning.  We give enthusiastic people the opportunity to share their knowledge with others and build community, creating a more resourceful and healthy community - sharing ways to live more simply, economically, and environmentally friendly lives!

Changes are afoot for the LLV!

Hello Friends!

You may have noticed you haven't received one of our Local Living Venture workshop event emails in a while!  We've taken a hiatus - they will come back eventually, though not at the rate of 60 per year!  In the meantime, we're looking at ways to make the LLV more sustainable.
