Making Coal-burned Wooden Bowls
Join John Kennedy at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust for our “Walk in the Wild” on Sunday, October 21st, at 2:30 pm for a workshop on Burned Bowl making. We will discuss, demonstrate and practice primitive bowl and spoon making techniques. We will use coals to burn the center of the piece of wood we want to shape into a bowl. The charred wood is easier to remove than fresh wood, when scraping out the bowl. John always wanted to be Buffalo Bill Cody. John fell in love with the Pine Barrens at 5 yrs old. He has fished & canoed the rivers, hiked the sand trails & gone to school there. John took several classes at Tom Brown's survival school, and that’s where the natural world opened up for him. Learning native living skills and survival skills is much more rewarding when practicing as a group; learning happens exponentially, it’s also much more fun! We will meet at the Willoughby House at the end of Pine Avenue, off Good Intent Road in Blackwood Terrace, or you can put "340 Pine Avenue, Deptford" into your favorite mapping service. There is an additional small parking lot available at the end of Rankin Ave, one block from Pine Ave. Please check our Facebook for changes and directions. Information and questions: Charles White,[masked]. Car pooling recommended. Free and open to all. Optional but helpful - bring a camp chair

What we're about

Our main mission is to educate the public on the many uses of wild plants and animals for food, fiber, and medicine. Wild edible plants and animals are the only truly sustainable food source, in that nature determines whether they survive and thrive. So, it's important that we respect, explore, and know nature. But we can't do it alone.

We need more tour guides and collaborative walks! Please volunteer. Go to for more information, our free Field Guides, and other important information!

Also, find the latest Plant-of-the-Week and news under "MORE", then "Message Board".
