We hope that you can make time to join us at the Spring Festival this Saturday, April 12 from 10:00am-1:00pm! We know that schedules are busy, and we encourage you to edit your family’s calendar to contain just what is most meaningful. We hope that participating in our school festivals makes the cut! Festivals give us reason to come together in awe of both our physical experience in nature at a given time of year, as well as a time to celebrate that which is our soul’s experience of the Season.
At Farm School, your child really is one with nature for most of his/her day. The children observe subtle changes in nature from day to day and week to week as they crawl, pick, collect, and roll upon the ground. I’m sure they see the first indications that a new season is upon us before we do! In fact, did you know that a child’s eyes are trained by the quality of natural light to which they are exposed and grounding (walking barefoot or laying on the Earth) puts the child “…in direct contact with…favorable physiological and electrophysiological changes that promote optimum health”? (Mercola, 11/04/12)
Spring…new life, a new chance, a breath out, a time to clear out that which does not serve us. Now that sounds like a reason to celebrate to me!
