STAGE 3: Children’s Forest Facilitator Training

Tending a Children’s Forest, 2 day residential camp

During this weekend course we will explore tending the land and our role as caretakers – reconnecting us with the positive part humans can play in the health of our ecosystem.  For a successful tree planting project, the tending is as important, if not more so, than the planting of the trees. We are committed to tending these forests into their full potential.

The tending of a newly planted Children’s Forest offers children and their communities a place to develop connections with each other as well as the land and the family of species with which we share the world.  Here we develop heart connection as well as knowledge and ecological understanding.  We will explore the practicalities of looking after the trees; the creation of habitats for wildlife; surveying the site and reporting with advice from ecologists.

COST: £250  includes camping and organic vegetarian meals.
