ThriftCamp is a one-day unconference discussing how to live well on a limited means. Living in a consumption culture that is destroying our limited resources and in tough economic times, I find this idea great. For those not familiar with unconferences, the main Idea is to bring smart people together and to share ideas in a semi formal series of sessions. A projector will be available if people have more formal starting points for session but you do not need to be ultra prepared to help lead a talk. The discussions may include how to repair your clothes, how to budgeting, making your own soap, cooking great meals on thin budget, or my favorite brewing your own beer/wine.
Here are a few suggestions already under consideration; Webster Walker from Central Co-op talking about co-operatives as community-based businesses at 11 AM or Charmine Slaven from the Seattle Urban Farm Co-op talking about Urban Farming at 3 PM. The final content of the conference will be determined by you the participants.
ThriftCamp has a suggested donation of ten dollars. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you will be attending ThriftCamp, I recommend registering.
