Autumn 2019 Forest Homeschool
Outdoor adventures including bushcraft skills, fire making and cooking, den-building, tracking, nature-art, clay creations, forest-free-play, games, rope swings/bridges, storytelling, and theater.
As a nature-based mentoring-programme, the heart of the sessions connect participants to the land, each other, and to a supportive natural community. Our participants develop strong naturalist skills, wilderness awareness, earth living skills, creative thinking, gaining inspiration from the land. Forest School sessions foster creativity, awareness, confidence building, self-expression, satisfying participation in community, resilience, and stewardship.
