Dig in to SoulShine Summer Camps

Permaculture

Permaculture is a toolbox of ecological and resource-wise practices that create a more balanced and fair relationship with the earth and the people who inhabit it. By studying the patterns of nature and working with them, we become more harmonious participants in life and living. Permaculture works toward building a more regenerative landscape, and encompasses using less energy, eating wholesome, local food, involving your family in the life of the community and making wiser choices that will improve the quality of life for your family, your community and the environment around you.

Homesteading: Practical skills that reinforce self-sufficiency: gardening, cooking, foraging.

Well-Being: Caring for their bodies and their spirits; understanding the benefits of whole foods for nourishment.

Community: Experiencing local and global community and beginning to understand our place in the world.

Nature Stewardship: Valuing nature and exploring ways to developing a healthy relationship with the earth and its people.
