This Small House, 10 - Noon
Looking to reduce consumption and simplify your lifestyle? Ever wonder about living in a tiny house? Three people who heeded Henry David Thoreau's call to "Simplify. Simplify" and built tiny houses will share their experiences:
John Hanson Mitchell, acclaimed author of "Ceremonial Time" and "Living at the End of Time," will discuss building/living for two years in a one-room neo-Gothic home.
Derek "Deek" Diedricksen, profiled on NPR and in The New York Times for his micro-cottages and low-cost dwellings, will talk about techniques for building simple shelters and show off at least one of his creations.
Sage Radachowsky, a carpenter, small-guitar maker and Harvard evolutionary biologist, will discuss living in a moveable gypsy wagon in the heart of greater Boston.
This event is free and open to the public. Most appropriate for ages 12 and older. The daily parking fee is $5.00 per vehicle. For more information, please call (978) 369-3254.
Sponsored by the Friends of Walden Pond, an activity of The Thoreau Society.
