Through hands-on activities and field visits --and lots and lots of laughter--we help your child develop true appreciation for human relationships and the natural world. We explore the world through the 12 permaculture principles and its 3 notable ethics in order to understand our environment and our responsibility as citizens of this world. We explore themes such as climate change, nutrition, homesteading. We also look at how food (in)justice is tied to racial and economic inequities in the US and abroad in a safe, and thought-provoking atmosphere. Cultivating compassion and learning how to connect with one another locally and globally emerges throughout these themes.
Thank you for giving my son such a positive and fun learning experience! There is no greater feeling than seeing him happy at the end of the day.
