If I'm going to be honest here, and this seems like a good space to do that, I've never been a big fan of blogs. If it weren't for detailed how-to's on sewing or honest reviews on gear or equipment I am looking to invest in, I wouldn't spend much time perusing them. That being said, I do really apreciate opensource information poised & ready for those who want to use it. After all, I did basically learn how to sew via the internet before ever considering studying it or having a career in textiles. So I'll keep it simple here in the journal, focusing on the lovely people who come on Galavant hikes & the ways we can/do work to help craft the kind of world we want to live in.
So, what is Galavant hoping to do?
To put it simply, to get amazing female identifiers outdoors & be active- together. Making space is important!
To learn new skills & hone in on the ones we carry around already- some of which need some uncovering.
To learn about our local community+our natural spaces & how we can positively interact with each.
How will we do that?
By hosting regular hikes, campouts, backpacking, climb nights, trail work days, etc. Some will be co-ed and the rest for female identifiers only. You have a request? Click Contact & tell us!
Putting on workshops experimenting with skills such as first aid, natural dyeing, fire starting, plant identification, etc.
Helping provide service & space to the trails we love, via trash cleanups & trailwork.
By connecting our ladies with other great local organizations doing events in Tennessee.
