The natural world is shaping the women we want these girls to become. In the intimate experience of deep nature connection, innate wonder emerges and the Wild challenges them to do hard things and to ask new questions. They become creative problem solvers and they build confidence by doing things themselves. Children are our field guides to curiosity. They hold the maps of the imagined world.
Each day we will explore the forest and farm and we will discover the magic and possibility of his world. There will be time to whittle sticks, build forts and fairy houses, harvest and learn about native plants and herbs, weave baskets, and sand native pine cone seed beads. We will also cook together, play confidence building games and contribute to a community collage of our own earth mandala.
