Kamaroi Steiner School Parent Education Sourdough Workshop – Testaments

ADULT EDUCATION, COOKING, EDUCATION, Uncategorized

“I was thrilled to join the sourdough workshop. It really was an amazing revelatory class for me and I will be using what you taught me with my family for years to come”

“I Just wanted to share my very positive feedback on the Sourdough Workshop with Sandra which we went to as a family last Sunday. We had a very good time connecting with other families, cooking and learning new things, singing songs and eating a meal together. Sandra made everything look so easy and even though I had baked bread before, I never felt easy or creative about it. After the workshop I had attempted to bake another loaf of bread using the starter Sandra gave us to take home and it was a success! I have baked three loaves since then.”

Glenaeon School Newsletter – Class 2 Garden Sprouts

TEACHING

Class 2 were excited to come back and look at the sprouting garlic and carrots that they planted before the holidays. With gardening teacher Sandra Frain, they observed the beautiful bulbs starting to flower and began digging with earnest in the new garden bed. The light rain has been wonderful for the earth. They sprinkled a rich mineral fertiliser made from weeds gathered in the previous term.

Tree Care: The Healing Way – Wed 27 July 1930-2100

GARDENING, TEACHING

To reach out and to care for trees is an empowering capacity that we can develop with the children in our lives.

In this workshop you will learn how to make a nourishing covering for the favourite trees in your life. We will discuss different ways to ‘sculpt’ fruit trees for maximum access to the fruit. 

CARING FOR TREES is a useful gardening practice and a healing opportunity for the trees and the humans of all ages who do the caring. 

Making the healing paste and applying it is great fun 

Wise regenerative agriculturalists know that putting a paste/paint on the trees trunks and branches helps to nourish the trees and to support the tree from invasions of insects, moulds and disease.

PLEASE NOTE: WE KEEP OUR CHARGES MINIMAL FOR HOMESCHOOLERS AND OTHER PARENTS ATTENDING THE WORKSHOP INDEPENDENTLY. WE ALSO INVITE SCHOOLS TO JOIN THIS PROGRAM AND FOR A SMALL FEE THEY CAN OFFER THIS WORKSHOP FREE TO THEIR PARENTS.
