Teaching: 

Kids Program

The kids program at The Acorn Gathering is intended to support the children in their exploration with hands-on and experiential-based learning. With the support of our Kids Program instructors and you, as parents, a sacred and playful space will be provided for the little ones to get their hands on various crafts and skills. We work with other instructors at the gathering on how to include the children in experiencing or witnessing the classes that involve learning more complex skills. We want to support every child to explore skills they feel called to. There will be instructors supporting 4-7 year olds and 8-12 year olds (give or take on the age). Teens and all youth who feel ready will be encouraged to join adults in classes. Integration is key!

We will have specific instructors offering classes for youth to explore a craft or skill, or have their parent join them to give the instructor support. This will all be announced at each Morning Circle after breakfast.

 

Acorns & Oaks!

Learn to process delicious and nutritious acorn flour in this hands-on session, where we’ll  prepare acorn flour to integrate into a wild feast that will serve our village! As we pound and leach acorn we’ll discuss different processing methods, and talk about the oak woodland ecology so vital for supporting all life – humans and nonhumans alike.
