Contributor of Skills

A contributor of skills includes those who sell their art, foodstuffs, and other specialties in the Community Shoppe, or who teach others their passions and know-hows in the form of a public workshop or private class.  A percentage of all sales goes back into The Backwoods in order to allow us the continued use of the resources we can't trade for.
