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. He has extensive knowledge of plants, animals, and their environments and dedicates his life to sharing and growing his skills. John Michael will lead the workshop participants through the beautiful woods of Foxhollow to appreciate Nature’s wonders on every scale.
