Weather-permitting, we leave the common house by 10 am for a walk around the surrounding land where we will learn about many useful plants around Earthwell and the neighboring county preserve (Clark & Avis Spike Preserve) that may also be in your backyard!
We will learn how to establish woven living fences that can deter deer, increase biodiversity, provide food stock, and provide regenerative material for weaving and folk crafts. Finally, we will spend the afternoon after lunch learning to weave holiday ornaments with materials we collect.
