Nature ranger, winter sunshine
Scrambled eggs, beans , sour dough bread, cooked on the fire and ate in the winter sunshine. All at Naturewise community Forest garden which was still bearing raspberries and apples last week, in mid November.
What we have been up to is:
Finding and noticing unusual objects in the landscape, like this bright orange rubber glove helps us to see more intently the colours and shapes around us.
Slowing us down we enjoy our being in nature. This makes us happy, like drinking clear water when we are really thirsty.
We went looking for the tiniest thing in the garden – below a pip (amongst other finds) revealed after eating the apple .
Each person went and found something that they felt was a bit like them. The children drew on colours from leaves and seeds that were like colours in their hair and eyes and found things that reflected how they were feeling that day.
We started making up stories using; a line of string helping our story go from one place to another , nature and our imaginations, to wonderful results.
Here we are making an insect together
each becoming a part of the whole creature.
