Blossoming @ The Farm Forest School
Join our Blossoming Souls community for a year long, Friday Forest School experience. Together Mary (BC Certified Teacher, Forest School Practitioner, Equine Guided Practitioner) and our land will engage in child honoring, place-based, emergent learning, with a small pod of 7 Heartwood Learning Community students. This program will be held in “Forest Camp'; settled in the Southern corner of Mary’s Farm and Sanctuary, adjacent to the Goldstream Estuary, old growth forests and the animal family of the farm. The opportunities for collaborative exploration, nature art, scientific discovery, equine encounters and gardening are abundant. Perhaps the offering most valuable is that we believe in sustained time for wild and free play, loose parts, storytelling and deep connection.
This is an outdoor based program with the flexibility of indoor shelter when needed. A list of needed clothes will be included in your registration package.
Date: September 15, 2017 – June 22, 2018
Days: Fridays, following a calendar of professional development dates and holidays; which will be provided in the registration package.
Join Hannah on Wednesdays at the barn for animal experiences, free play in the 30+ acre woods, fun and connection. This program is designed with the belief that time in nature and with animals is vital to keeping us connected to ourselves and others.
