The Winter Forest: An Herbal Adventure Day

Saturday January 11th – Let’s play outside! This forest adventure includes fire building, woodland movement skills, herbal medicine, & more!

Saturday, January 11th
Royalston, MA
10:00am – 6:00pm

Your Adventure Includes:

  • Fire-Making – Learn To Build & Light A Fire
  • Herbal Medicine – Plant ID & Practical Applications
  • Forest Movement Skills – MovNat Instruction & Adventures
  • Campfire Lunch & Snacks – gluten-free & dairy-free, local, organic, and homemade!

🔥 Fire comes first in a wintertime survival situation, so that’s what we’ll start out with! You’ll learn how to set up a fire so it’ll light the first time. Together we’ll practice ways of making fire with a lighter, a match, and a single spark. You can do it!

🌲 Walk with us through a quiet and calm forest, rich with medicinal plants. Pine, hemlock, and oak trees above; wintergreen, mitchella, and goldthread below. Learn to identify the plants which make good medicines – even in the depths of winter – and how to work with them.

🤸 As we visit these wild herbs, we’ll practice moving quietly, quickly, and confidently over uneven terrain. We’ll hike, stretch, carry, jump, climb, and move in all kinds of new and interesting ways with the help of the trees, rocks, and water – and each other!

🧘 You’ll have plenty of time to move, but also lots of time to rest, nourish, and reset. There will be opportunities to connect and meditate in nature. Feel free to go for a cold-water plunge in the brook!

As the sun sets we’ll gather around the campfire to share stories and experiences.

You also have the OPTION to camp out overnight for no extra charge – as minimal or glampy as you like! (Plan for departure by noon on Sunday.)

Only 10 spots available!

All bodies are welcome! Come as you are!

(This is an adults-only event.)
