Hands on Learning – Retooling

When you look at history, the generations that came before us, knew how to repair what broke. Today, we live in a throw away society. Our grand parents generation would not dare to throw something away just because it looked bad, or was in need of a minor repair.  For my generation, the big push was for everyone to get a college degree.  Never mind that by pushing everyone possible to get a degree, they created a generation that had no idea how fix anything at all. Due to this lifestyle and the push of society to look down on blue collar workers. We are now in a sever shortage of skilled people that know how to work and use their hands.

Part of a healthy world is where the average person has a “can do attitude”. One where the desire to repair, reuse, and maintain ones belongings and environment. This is good stewardship of ones resources, and provides a good deal of satisfaction when the project is completed.

In accordance with this philosophy we are offering workshops, and one on one consulting / training in the following areas,  (ALL PHONE AND EMAIL CONSULTS ARE FREE! There may be a charge for other forms of consultation, as well as materials. Thank You) in an effort to help the communities learn to repair their world.   Webinars and consulting via Skype are now availible on a case by case basis . Not only will learning these skills help in conserving money, and in the environment, they will be handy should the luxuries that you now enjoy in this society go down. We would encourage all of you to retool and develope an lifestyle of continual learning in order to better serve the community in which you live.
