Author chooses path less travelled

NANAIMO – Author shares experience about living off the grid.

Vancouver Island  author Miles Olson has chosen the path less travelled.

He spent the past decade living off the grid as a squatter, forager, hunter and gardener on the forested edge of civilization, making the transition from suburbanite to modern-day woodsman.

This experience led to the writing of his book Unlearn, Rewild: Earth skills, ideas and inspiration for the future primitive.

Olson shares his experiences, perspective and vision for a healthy world at the latest Nanaimo Foodshare Society: Speaker Series Saturday (May 11) in Rm. 1 at Beban Park Social Center.

The event begins at 2 p.m. and admission is a suggested $5 donation to the Nanaimo Foodshare Society.
