Back to Basics is founded by a group of members with like-minded concerns about our ever-growing society. We have noticed how considerably changed the mindset and physical state of today's society is, compared to when we were growing up.


Basic skills such as growing our own food, cooking our own meals and even managing our time have become totally lost; however with your help we want to change that, by offering skills workshops and providing places for you to gain practical hands-on experience
