About this project
About this project: It's more than food; we reskill everything.
Watch the video to see our dazzling scope.
The Reskilling Expo provides low-cost Sustainable Living Skills Education. We maintain two Public Seed Libraries. We've just opened a TimeBank.
The stealth purpose of the Reskilling Expo is to create a Knowledge Commons where talent, skill and information are freely shared.
Reskilling uncovers hidden talents, reclaims lost abilities, and unearths the wisdom needed to create sustenance and bounty. We reskill to restore, cherish and preserve our quality of life and our environment
Reskilling reclaims skills that were known fifty to seventy-five years ago. It imbues the community with a shared knowledge of how to do, make and tend things oneself.
See www.reskillingexpo.org for complete schedules.
Every town and city should reskill. We've created a Reskilling Expo Template that you can use to create your own event. We want to share our foibles and secrets-for-success far and wide.
The Santa Cruz Grows Seed Library is a cool urban seed project. We want people who have never grown a bean to borrow seeds and give it a try. We want Seed Stewardship to be as common as social media.
TimeBanking values people differently. Get your trousers hemmed. Learn to make limoncillo. Take a piano lesson. Brush up on your conversational Italian. Use a bicycle courier. Have your plumbing and electrical repairs done. Enjoy a massage. Design and install a greywater system.
Our TimeBank connects people who give and receive. It's a non-commercial exchange system, a currency beyond price.

We need your support to nurture these three projects through the next year.
Funds will be used to send our Template around the country. For hall rental fees, publicity, and materials and supplies for Exhibits. For program development and member support. For outreach.
No donation is too small. We have 60 days to reach our goal. If we don't make it to $5000, we get nothing.
