Do you want to learn about permaculture and nature play with a community of homeschoolers? 

We facilitate moonthly gatherings to present and support you with a curriculum to learn and practice permaculture through nature play!

This moonth is about the "Catch and Store Energy" principle, which is the module theme for our curriculum for this lunar cycle!

Why Attend? We come together as a community to connect, nourish and grow together as we journey through the 12 permaculture principles a month at a time, embodying them as a community of change-makers and earth carers. This curriculum is based on the Nature Kids Permaculture Program online course!
How it works...
We gather monthly around the new moon to have some nature play fun with parents and kids together.
- There will be activities to do with your kids together and then activities specifically for the kids whilst parents do their own learning! Samatha and Tonielle will take both groups on an educational journey to engage your head, heart and hands!
What you get...
+ We will teach you 'how to' facilitate the curriculum at home for your kids so you can learn permaculture together.
+ A month of printable resources and curriculum (from our online program).
+ Workshopping session for parents and play activities for kids do on the day.
+ Movement and mindfulness session.
+ Group coaching and ongoing support in our private Facebook group with Q&A sessions.
If you decide to journey with us each month throughout the year, you will:
* Access our in-depth Permaculture curriculum and earth-based wisdom practices to design your lifestyle for abundance.
*Deepen your connection to your environment with nature, play activities and adventures.
*Transform your life with Permaculture thinking and strategies and get skilled in sustainability.
* Complete DIY projects to create a functional edible permaculture garden/landscape and natural playground.
*Create and continually contribute to your Book of Kin.
Who it is for...
- Homeschooling families wanting to connect with other families from a permaculture learning perspective, to learn and grow together.
- Any mums or dads interested in nature-based play with kids at home.
- Earth lovers ready to get skilled in sustainability and facilities for and with their children.

I took my two boys to the Nature kids Program and it was exactly what they needed.
They had the opportunity to explore their interests and learn about the Earth in an incredibly supportive and fun environment run by amazing facilitators.
They had a blast getting dirty and using their imagination to create wonderful things!
Such a great way to get them back to Nature.

Such a beautiful program!! Highly recommended!! Samantha and Tonielle engaged with the children in heart-centered, cretieve, playful and honouring ways, whilst engaging children with the natural world, and bringing deep value to their important role of being contributors to our community and the natural world.

Nature Kids Program has provided an experience for my little one that was both enriching and fun. My nine-year-old has been lucky enough to go to a few of these programs and she always comes back smiling, full of joy and new knowledge.
