Our Program

We are a place based outdoor experiential learning program, aimed to build meaningful relationships with the natural world. Our focus is to foster a nurturing and inspiring love of nature, and all her inhabitants, that translates into a deep understanding, ethics of care, a sense of inclusiveness, and healthy choices for individuals and for the planet; while growing community resilience, connection and compassion. Our activities are designed around games, eco art, and play, engaging all the senses. Through gentle mentoring we teach participants how animals communicate through body language and verbal sounds. How to care for them with empathy and kindness, and teach them with positive reinforcement methods. The focus of our nature and garden activities engage creative thinking, curious inquiry, and understanding the interdependence of all beings. Our transformational education program explores food chains, habitat health, ecological principles, systems thinking, permaculture practices, plant knowledge, sustainability and stewardship, animal advocacy, environmental preservation & so much more!
