About The Magic of Trees (subsidised price)
A series of seasonal tree days weaving in nature connection, medicine making, folklore, crafts, song & poetry
We are making a year-long series of Sundays at the lush Hackney Tree Nursery & Forest Garden, to bring us into contact with the lore, the wisdom, the medicine, the craft and the magic of our tree communities and their value in our ecologies.
Each day will be a gathering to share knowledge, practical activity and connection with the land, marking a cycle and season of the year, and focusing on a different theme connecting with the season:
(each day runs 10am-4pm with shared lunch)
Sunday 14th July: Introducing Tree Identification, Biology & Ecology
Sunday 15th September: Tree Harvests, Exploring Food & Medicine
Sunday 3rd November: Trees and their Wood, Fire & Craft
Sunday 2nd February: Woodland Management, Coppicing, Crafts
Sunday 3rd May: Tree Blossom, Pollinators and Spring Medicine
Put together by Ida, Ximena & Rasheeqa, these days will mix shared learning, body connection and practices with a range of tree-connected work. We are inviting skilled people in the above fields to bring wisdom to us!
Keep an eye on the facebook page for regular updates about guests, activities and special elements! :)
