May 5-6: Hoosier Homestead gathering at Salamonie Lake

The Hoosier Homestead Gathering, May 5 and 6, at Salamonie Lake, offers guests the opportunity to learn how to simplify their lives.

Guests can meet people who have already simplified by doing things such as using solar energy and raising bees. Going to the Hoosier Homestead Gathering will help visitors make the connections needed to show them how to make desired changes.

On May 5 the event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 6 hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The program fee is $3; children age 3 and younger are free. The park entrance fee is $5 per car for Indiana residents and $7 per car for out-of-state residents.

Hoosier Homestead Gathering also seeks people who are interested in setting up a booth representing a simplified lifestyle or a homespun business.
