Embracing Tradition - Cultivating Community
Townsend Visitor Center
Welcome to the peaceful side of the Smokies
Cultivating a Thriving Community
At ETHA community comes first.
Cultivating community means fostering connections, supporting each other, and celebrating together. It's about building friendships, helping neighbors, and creating a place where everyone feels welcome and valued. By attending the festival you will find like minded individuals that you can lock arms with. Let's come together, lift each other up, and grow stronger as a community.
Joining us will be industry leaders, Joel Salatin from PolyFace Farms, Adam Martin from BEEingKept, Janelle Anderson from Haven Farms, Kerry Brown from Strong Roots Resources, and others sharing their invaluable experiences and roles in the homesteading community. You will learn from the best in the nation.
