Tending The Wild (ages 6-10)

Tending The Wild

Tuesdays 12:30pm to 4:30pm

Engage the many ways that we as human people can be caretakers of the land.  Join instructors Arlene Slocombe, Bree Leggett, and Alisha Cino, and start to walk with a light footprint, push out our awareness, and pull in our disruption. We practice bird language, deep listening to the plants and the land, ethical plant harvesting, folk methods for simple herbal remedies, storytelling, and song lines. All of this entwined in games and animal form play.

What you can can expect

This program is for the child who demonstrates an ability to work with a quiet mind on focused projects.  Promoting young stewards is about observation and awareness of the land, which is achieved through projects, games, nature craft, song, and story.  If your child is introspective, caring, calm, and compassionate already, this is the right sessions for them.


Registration is welcome at any time, fees are automatically pro-rated.

I love the games, and playing with friends.

I love that kids are given the chance to see themselves as caretakers, not just takers.
