Earth Bound Expedition

Earth Bound Expedition

Sun, Jul 09, 2023 - Sat, Jul 22, 2023  (14 days)
  Ages: 12 - 15

Offered in partnership with the Maine Local Living School

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to gather everything that you need to live directly from the Earth? On this expedition we will travel to the working homestead of Maine Local Living School in Temple, Maine, where systems of sustainable living are well established. We will spend the first week honing skills with axe and saw, carving our own bowls and spoons, tanning a hide, processing acorns into bread flour, and drying fruits and vegetables from the garden to take with us on an expedition into the surrounding mountains. Once on expedition we will live simply, gathering food and medicine as we travel, drinking from mountain springs, making fire by friction, and sitting around the hearth hearing and telling the stories that remind us of what it means to be a part of the Earth.
