Weaving a Future Together Part Two

The Weaving a Future Together program will consist of various workshops including a biodynamic herb workshop, a nettle workshop, and a biodynamic calendar-making workshop. The Biodynamic Herbs workshop will include collecting seeds from some of the herbs used in biodynamic preparation making. The children will make seed balls with these seeds and will learn how to distribute the seed balls so that come springtime, they can expect to see these plant allies growing in those locations. The Fun With Nettles workshop will invite the children into a full sensory experience working with nettles.

Fiber Arts on the Farm Part Two

In this hands-on, tactile experience, children will learn how to process fiber from raw wool to handspun yarn using age-old techniques such as carding wool, spinning on a drop spindle, and weaving on a peg loom. We will take a closer look at different kinds of fiber produced by animals and plants and traditional dyes that come from nature. Every participant will take home a new skill and even a small sample of handspun yarn. Parents are welcome to join and learn with their children.

Elemental Spirits in the Garden

Children's Drama Workshop

Children of all ages are invited to rehearse and perform, "The Queen Bee", by the Brothers Grimm.   This wonderful and fun-filled "Simpleton Story" was chosen as "an homage to the bees".  The tale will be told first thing, however, children (some with the help of their parents) are welcome to familiarize themselves with the story before hand if they wish.  Children are also welcome and even encouraged to bring along simple materials (material, cloths, etc.) that might come in handy for simple costumes. Some parts of the story will be performed in eurythmy as well!
