Have you ever wondered what you would do if the grid just collapsed? There are plenty of ways it can happen, and most Californians today wouldn’t have a clue how to survive without electricity and life skills that were utilized a mere 100 years ago in the U.S. A special event at a replica Ohlone Village near Cupertino teaches kids and adults the basics such as rope making, flint knapping, acorn grinding and even fire starting using just what nature provides.

Adults take it all in and some even have an “aha” moment!  Ohlone Day takes place at Deer Hollow Farm near Cupertino on October 13, 2013. See more>
