Founded in 2008, Koviashuvik is a small school that teaches practical and inexpensive ways for people to live with and use their local land. Through a blend of traditional folk arts, wilderness travel, organic gardening, sustainable technologies, primitive skills and permaculture, Koviashuvik hopes to connect people to the land, each other, and to the joys of providing for oneself right from the earth. Classes range from one-hour long off-site workshops, to residential weekend programs, to extended apprenticeships. We work with school groups, families, and individuals of all ages. Want to visit?
