We’ll be holding a one week permaculture kid’s day camp this summer from June 16-20 at Moccasin Lake Park. This is our first kid’s activity in Florida and we’re excited.
This will be a weeklong immersion in the magic and beauty of the natural world, in the context of learning permaculture principles. Kids ages 8-12 will experience Coyote Mentoring while learning wilderness skills, how natural systems operate, and permaculture principles, all through action and observation learning in this beautiful 50 acre park.
Activities will include:
Basic tracking skills
Planting seeds and plants
Native American skills
Observing nature through a variety of fun, active exercises
Designing with nature
Easy wild edibles

Enrollment is limited and class is expected to fill up – so register early!

Both the Permaculture Design Course at Pine Ridge and Urban Permaculture Design Course at Tampa will offer college credits from local colleges. We will have the course numbers available soon, but if you are a student, please plan on being able to purchase three credits from your local college for the course.
