Workshops include “rewilding” primitive skills like fire starting, water filtering, rock boiling, solar stills and debris hut making. Also permaculture puppet theater, gardening for “squares”, fairy finding and fairy art, compost building and compost tea, seed bombs, nature journaling, living spice racks, nature’s medicine chest, a frog walk, the wonderful world of soil, a plant swap followed by a potluck dinner and music-making at the Community Gardens.

Here’s the description of the FROG WALK, by Steve Lagerquist:
Did you know frogs and toads use muscles attached to their eyes to help them swallow their prey, or that they have to push, not suck, air into their lungs in order to breath? Find out what kind of frogs and toads we have here in T.C. And learn more fun anuran facts on the frog walk.”
