Bushcraft Skills Intensive

 

Next program: WILDCRAFTING

Thursday 7 October – Thursday 22 October or Friday 8 October – Friday 22 October 2021

Our Primitive Skills Intensives empower children to learn a new bushcraft skill each season. Spring is WILDCRAFTING!

3 weeks
3 sessions
3 wildcrafted plants

and a personal herbal first aid kit to pack in your backpack for future adventures!

These are hands-on sessions designed to build the capacity of children to identify, plant, harvest and process local wildcrafted plants with safety, awareness and skill.

 

 

Sessions are Thursdays or Fridays, weekly, for 3 weeks. Participants attend either Thursday or Friday for the 3 week intensive. Cost is for the full program, and participants will each handsew an ecodyed pouch to carry their first aid kit in, which will contain 3 herbal remedies and other necessary child-friendly first aid inclusions.

 

Natureweavers are honored to be mentoring this program for ‘middle childhood’. This period of childhood – between 5-12 years – sees the ongoing development of self, as unique and separate, alongside the development of an increasing connection to nature – this duality is fertile ground where the seed for lifelong earth stewardship behaviour can be planted. It is a crucial stage of childhood development from an earth sustainability perspective and we are compelled to mentor children of this age at this time with content that we know – practically and intuitively – and love.
