(PART 2) Wild; food & shelter

Living nonviolently to our earth (PART 2) WILD; FOOD & SHELTER


Spring is a time of flourishing and looking to the future – we will continue with our question from PART 1 , looking on a larger scale and to the outdoors.

There will be natural building workshops, a talk about the 1000 simple shelter’s project, learning wilderness/foraging skills & adding spring wildflowers to the peace garden.

We will be looking at the food systems & taking part in a nonviolent action of reducing food waste by making soup: Disco Soup style!

(Part 1): Sowing seeds for spring

Living nonviolently towards the earth (Part 1): Sowing seeds for spring

“Live simply so others may simply live”

Join us as we begin to question how we can live nonviolently towards the earth.

It’s autumn and as we approach the Celtic new year of Samhuin, we start to plan for the year to come, and begin preparing the garden to flourish in spring.

We will sow seeds in our minds as we learn how we can easily make change in our day to day lives, as well as sowing seeds outside as we begin building our peace garden.
