NOTE: PLEASE RSVP IF ATTENDING.
The Skills that we practice on this Aboriginal Skills Walkabout will depend upon what mother nature decides to present to us (and upon our "AWARENESS" of what is presented!). Whatever it is, these outings are always fun, interesting and beautiful! Nature always provides!
We will sample some wild plants for food, medicine and utilitarian uses, in addition to practicing plant communication and ethical harvesting techniques with conscious awareness.
It is likely that we will make small baskets from the Yucca Plant, along with soap and cordage, and possibly do a little netting and flintknapping. Aboriginal fire making will be demonstrated with possible opportunity to practice if time allows. Remember, all of these skills are pathways to a deeper connection/relationship with our natural environment and ourselves.
Feel free to participate fully, partially, or simply enjoy the camaraderie of other nature lovers and observe the happenings.
Note: Detailed meeting instructions will be provided upon RSVP. All participants must sign a liability waiver form prior to start of class.
