In 2004, my friend and primitive technology expert Diederik Pomstra from Het Stenen Tijdperk, came up with the idea of a workshop weekend to share knowledge in the Netherlands about bushcraft, survival and primitive technology. And so the first Dutch Bushcraft Weekend was born.
The first edition was organized 20 – 21 Nov. 2004 in Baarn at the Buitenzorg Scout Centre. There were about 20 participants. (Unfortunately I didn’t take any picture during the weekend). After this weekend, I helped organize 10 more Bushcraft Weekends.
For more recent Dutch Bushcraft Weekends, see Stichting Bushcraft.
