It is the birthright of all human beings to live as natives upon this earth. By exploring the forest, meadows, and edges of Foxhollow Farm, we will rediscover the inherent abilities and ancestral technologies that allowed aboriginal humanity to live freely within an ever-changing universe. This class will be guided by both the interests of the group, and whatever nature has to offer in the present moment. Primary topics of focus will include: Wilderness Awareness & Movement, Wild Food & Medicine, Fire-by-Friction – DEEP NATURE CONNECTION.
This is the other elementary education ! – designed for ages 12 and older (but if you’re ready, you’re ready !)
John Michael Musselman is a Native of Oldham County and is currently an instructor at the HumaNature School in Traverse City, Michigan.

“QUEEN OF THE SUN: What Are the Bees Telling Us?” is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from Taggart Siegel, director of THE REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN. Taking us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, this engaging and ultimately uplifting film weaves an unusual and dramatic story of the heartfelt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world including Michael Pollan, Gunther Hauk and Vandana Shiva. Together they reveal both the problems and the solutions.
