We were very lucky to work once again with the Fostering Network, this time in Antrim. We operated out of the Compass Network farm in Ballymoney and went through four native trees here.
The activities centred around the birch, alder, ash and oak. The sessions which lasted four weeks included storytelling, knife skills, den building and working with trees.
We worked with ten children regularly, ages between 7 and 12 years, with varying abilities. Some of the feedback was…
How to survive
Everything about trees
How to make things
How to stay alive
We hope to work with them again in the future!
