Location visible to members


Join us, weather permitting, for a scavenger hunt style nature walk. We will attempt to search for, identify, and record the different butterflies/bugs and scat we find along the way. Even if it just ends up being a nice walk with good conversation, we'll call it a win.

Our goal for this series is to engage and connect kids to the natural world, encouraging a love and stewardship of the earth and its beings... keeping it laid-back, child-driven, and fun are our priorities.

The Permaculture for Kids series is geared toward children age 4-10, but older kids are welcome to come help out, and act as mentors. Really, anyone is welcome to join us and experience the beauty of social permaculture in action. Intergenerational relationships are the pillars of community development!

Bring a picnic potluck item to share, and we can lunch either along the way or at the end, depending on the group's needs.

Please check back at this page the morning of this meet-up if the weather is uncertain to confirm it's still a go.

The Permaculture for Kids series is free but, as always, donations are accepted.

A little about the Permaculture for Kids Series leaders:

Sarah Chapman-- Earth mama of two girls in Nottingham, NH doing the unschooling thing together and learning all the time- loves permaculture, gardening, playing music, making art as well as hanging out with groups of kids. :-)

Laura Williford -- I'm an avid gardener and nature marvelor with two boys at home. We live on a 0.5 acre semi wooded lot in Barrington, NH, where's I've taken up the best play spot in the yard to intensive garden.

Lauren Winterholer, mama to two lively littles, enjoys homesteading with her family on their small and wild, suburban plot in Madbury. She spends her days surrounded by mud, bugs, messy painting... and knows far too much about dinosaurs.
