Wild Literacy Workshops

Wild literacy happens when we get to know nature over time.

Workshops are held online with time together and time to explore rabbit holes on your own.

We often use a “flipped classroom” model where you view material on your own at your own pace, and then bring questions and reflections into our shared workshop time together. Workshops are geared toward adults.

In the end we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught. - Baba Dioum, 1968

TRE® Tune-Up: TRE® (Tension, Stress & Trauma Releasing Exercises) are a series of seven exercises that safely activate a natural reflex of shaking or vibrating to gently release muscular tension and calm the nervous system. Designed by Dr. David Berceli, TRE® is an effective, self-directed practice that can be used throughout your life to support your physiological well-being.

Decision Tree: What tree should I plant here? There’s never been a better moment to plant trees. Leave a legacy of clean air and water, soil regeneration, carbon storage, shade and shelter, and beauty by adding a tree to your yard or a shared community space. Planting a tree is both a commitment and a legacy for future generations. The Decision Tree workshop will help you find the right match for your place and you - it could literally be the biggest decision of your life!

Who lives in your yard? Get to know the plants and animals in your yard through identification techniques, observation and journaling. The first step toward taking care of a tree or plant is to understand what species it is and what its natural preferences and dislikes are. What works for one tree may be the opposite for another, know your trees before you plant, prune or fertilize! This course is for beginners, or those who have recently moved to a new patch of the world.

Note: Kindergarten rules apply in shared spaces. Please bring your whole self - giggles, tears and all - but you will be dismissed or sent to quiet time if harm to others occurs.
