The Gleaners Way to a Greener War

Learn why and how medieval folk Recycled, Reused, Renewed, and Repurposed items long before these became popular trends in the mundane world. Discover ways to make your campsite and our War as "green" as possible, share your concerns, ideas and learn solutions to environmental problems you've encountered during SCA events. Bring your camp's California Redemption Value bottles and cans to join in the family-friendly fun activity of the "Gleaners Stomp." You'll earn your first Gleaners Earth Tokens, as well as the materials to turn them into a necklace or bracelet. All are welcome, but smalls under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
