Summary: 

The CEED course is one of the modules of the Cultural Emergence learning pathway. We focus on how we can manifest our goals and visions effectively. Make a design for yourself or your organisation to create a culture of effectiveness.

This training will give you the confidence and skills to design any aspect of your life. We will be using the Design Web to create a design for ourselves as well as exploring how it can best be used in different scenarios. You will gain design skills and tools ready to take forward and do more designs.

During our time together we will focus on how we can dedicate our energy to finding effective solutions for ourselves and the world. This will be a richly nourishing, empowering and truly life transforming course.

Summary: 

A course for school & nursery teachers, forest school leaders, nature kindergarten teachers, parents and other educators to learn how to engage children in all aspects of permaculture, learning from nature with a child-led approach.
Permaculture is about working with nature, based on deep observation and understanding of the principles which underpin natural systems. Childhood is the ideal time to get to know nature, and how nature works, through play and experimentation.

We will:

*Find out how permaculture ethics and principles can be applied to education, in how we speak, the activities we engage in and in the spaces we design.
*Discover some great benefits of outdoor learning, including relevant research, and learn how to create session plans which engage the whole child: eyes, heart, hands and head, through active participation in a session learning about soil.
*Look at different garden designs both in school and home gardens and get involved in a practical activity such as testing soil.
* Learn about the different activities that we can do with children and, more importantly, think about how the way we approach the child can enable us to think of infinite possible activities.
*Meet other like-minded people on the course.

Summary: 

The Willow Backpack is currently the most in vogue basket in town (and in the countryside too!). This practical basket can be used for foraging mushrooms, collecting driftwood, shopping or packing your flask and towel for a spot of wild swimming.

Because there are more complex techniques involved than some other baskets, this willow backpack workshop is more suitable if you have some experience of willow weaving (or attended any of our other willow workshops).

During the two day workshop you will learn how to weave the D-shaped base, add upright stakes, weave the sides with 3-rod wale and French rand weaves and put on a border.

Take home your own unique and beautiful willow backpack basket. All tools and equipment will be provided.

Summary: 

The Wild Things Course is an eight month exploration of wild food and medicine growing in a variety of habitats in teh UK through the seasons. It includes opportunities to gain confidence in low impact foraging, beginners botany and ecology, and to develop a sensory approach to using wild plants both as food and medicine.

The online course is a combination of theoretical sessions, practical remedy making and walks in some beautiful wild areas. If you are able to come to Glasgow or Edinburgh once a month, you can also purchase and add-on of 7 in-person foraging walks.

Increasingly today our food and medicine is flown to us from far regions of the globe. Health food shops are stocked with ‘superfoods’ from rare and diminishing habitats, and we are commonly offered endangered species like Arnica & Echinacea. We have lost our connection to our local bioregion, and with it all of the history and traditions that our landscape and the plants that grow there can offer us. This course is about re-connection& about building sustainable, healthful practices through a deepening relationship with our local ecosystems.

The Course uses participatory learning methods & an action learning approach. Its learning outcomes for participants are to:

- Develop an understanding of the ethics and practice of ecological harvesting and gain a confidence in low impact foraging
- Try out recipes and learn practical remedy making skills for home use
- Learn about the edible and medicinal properties of some of our common British
plants and when to harvest them
- Develop a sensory approach to herbal medicine
- Beginners botany and ecology and the ability to confidently identify common
species
- Gain an understanding of how to live more harmoniously with the seasons

Optional Add-On
- Visit distinct habitats around Edinburgh or Glasgow and see how the plant communities that live within them change over the year

Dates: 
11 April 2022 to 28 October 2022

Online classes are released every 2 weeks, with a break at Midsummer. Students can access the online content indefinitely. In-person walks in Edinburgh or Glasgow are roughly monthly on Friday afternoons.
