Spring Holiday Program

 

Next program: Monday 20 September – Friday 24 September

Bushcraft, Permaculture, Deep Ecology, Eco-Art and Herbal Wisdom.

 

 

The transition from Winter to Spring – seeds sprout, flowers bloom, life grows. There is renewal, regeneration, rejuvenation – our forest offers up materials for

 

shelter building
fire making
whittling
ecodyeing
weaving
ink making

 

as well as

 

food to sprout
herbs to harvest
greens to nibble
medicine to make.

 

In this spirit, the Natureweavers Spring Holiday program will offer up experiences through which our children can sprout, bloom and grow – in, with and from nature.

Throughout the week, we will build a bushcraft village – with shelter and fire hearth, as well as comforts including seats and woven mats.

 

Participants will learn how to build a bushcraft shelter, whittle with wood and weave with natural materials. Our handwoven foraging baskets will then be filled with the offerings of Spring – honorably harvested wild greens and medicinals for our herbal elixirs and balms – elderflower cordial, plantain oil and chickweed vinegar for Spring.

 

Spring is governed by the element of A I R , thus the season of Birds, Bees and Flying Insects. We will learn the Wilderness Awareness Skills of Bird Language, choose an Insect Ally to study throughout the season, experience the wonder of native bees in their natural habitat, and kick off the Natureweavers BioBlitz for the year.

 

Spring is such a wonderful opportunity for children to connect to Earth with all their senses, to celebrate it’s abundance, fertility and joy, and to experience these qualities within themselves. The Spring Holiday Program is thus always abundant with games, challenges and creativity.

 

We welcome all children from age 4-16 years to come and join us for a day or for the whole week!
