Event Details

FOR AGES 7 – 12 

This Program is from 10 – 2 pm – July 9th – 13th

Website says just 9th , but this is a week long event for 4 hrs. 

What is Permaculture? Youth will collectively define this word by engaging in lively exploration, activities, and discussions in this experiential course.

Students will do things like:

 

  • Rewild the senses through observations in nature
  • Discover energy sources, design and build ways to harness that energy
  • Question how we feed ourselves through urban and rural homestead exploration, garden planting and harvesting, cooking with foraged foods and outdoor methods, meeting beekeepers, composters, herb growers and holistic farmers
  • Participate in a shelter raising, design temporary and more permanent structures and explore the resources we use to build tools and homes
  • Follow the roles that animals and plants play in our ecosystem and lives to identify closed and broken loops
  • Reimagine our urban spaces to include food, wildlife, nature and our needs
  • Find communication tools that will lead us to equitable, sustainable and just relationships and community structures

Youth should dress for the weather, bring snacks and a lunch, and a metal or nalgene water bottle.

There will be field trips to learn about blacksmithing, earthen ovens, timber framing, urban homestead design, rain-gardens, greywater systems, composting toilets, horse-powered farming, backyard chickens, beekeeping and more!

About Lacey Walker:

Lacey has been wild fermenting, foraging and leading courses at Fox Haven for many years. She got started on farms as an intern at Arcadia Center for Sustainable Agriculture introducing kids to veggies, compost and animal husbandry. Her interest in designing equitable, just and food-forested futures led her to get her Permaculture Design Certification and start adapting her knowledge to engage youth in imagining their own futures.

Parents are welcome to come on the field trips. Transportation is otherwise provided by Fox Haven.
