Sustainability, Re-Wilding & Community Living Workshops and Events in Victoria, Australia.
Creative Collectives are organisers of The School of Self-Sufficiency, Wolf Pack, Primitive Skills Gathering, Family Bush Camps and a variety of eco-living opportunities. We believe that self-sufficiency, nature connection and community living are the key to a happy, healthy, eco-friendly life. It is our mission to create fun opportunities for skill-building, learning, connecting and sharing to help people make the transition to a more sustainable and enjoyable life-style.
At our events you will learn many great practical skills (from primitive to modern technologies) and the importance of community connection. There is generally a mix of hands-on and lecture style workshops as well as free-time so you don’t get too worn out.
Our workshops are designed to be super fun, diverse and jam packed with excellent classes from all kinds of teachers. Because of our love for collaborations we’re constantly on the look out for unique teachers. We meet them all over the place and they’re always excited to share their skills, passion and knowledge with an enthusiastic group.
UPCOMING WORKSHOPS IN 2017:
Special Note: Unfortunately all of our workshops have been cancelled until further notice due to a cease of activity order from Council. Our local council are not permitting us to run our little eco-events on our farm until we go through the ful permit process. From feedback we’ve received from others this may take up to a year (or more). We’re extremely sad to have to put everything on hold as we love our workshops as much as you all do, but we hope to be back very soon with lots of amazing communal skill building experience for you. In the meantime we’ll be getting productive on the permaculture farming side of things and hope to have lots of beautiful fresh produce available onsite for when we kick things off again. See Hidden Valley Farm page for more on this.
Our workshops are always action packed and include a diverse range of classes from guest teachers from all walks of life. Teaching workshops from the following topics:
FUN TIMES & NATURE CONNECTIONS
We truly believe that “if it’s not fun, it’s not sustainable” so all of our events have an element of fun, and our easy-going attitude seems to filter through the whole group allowing everyone to have a great time.
All of our workshops are hosted in beautiful outdoor spaces on farms and the nature time you get will top you up with that all important “Vitamin N (nature)” leaving you feeling healthy and happier after your time with us.
BONUS COMMUNITY EXPERIENCE
Creative Collective’s create opportunities for you to not only learn and share, we encourage you to collaborate too. Community Living and Collaboration are an underlying freebie that go hand-in-hand with all of our workshop experiences. By coming to any of our events you can expect to feel welcomed, included, part of the team and leave with a bucket full of great new friends.
There is a huge Creative Collectives family all over Australia now, who catch up regularly, run their own gatherings and support each other in projects and life in general.
WHERE! – North-East Victoria
Most of our workshops are held on farms around North-East Victoria, however from time to time we run pop-up events in other States around Australia to spread the love.
