Event description

Description

In 2016, Burning Man Project acquired Fly Ranch. The 3,800 acre parcel in northern Nevada is home to dozens of hot and cold pools, three geysers, wetlands, a playa, an old farmhouse, dozens of animal species, and more than 100 identified types of plants. Learn more here: https://flyranch.burningman.org/.

Fly Ranch can serve as an incubator for the Burning Man community to take ideas and give them a real-world testing ground. It can become a place to experiment with shelter, energy, water, environmentalism, new models of living, working and governance.

Burning Man is using an open-source approach and software to plan and coordinate. In this talk, we'll discuss our property, approach, resources, and challenges.

Suggested $3 donation at the door, or you can donate to Fly Ranch Project here.
