Urban Wildness Survival




We are surrounded by an urban wilderness. Even right in the city we can find spaces that are wild. Come hang out at the Purple Thistle and learn useful, awesome skills for city living. Using the Purple Thistle space, as well as city gardens and parks, we will practice becoming urban scouts by observing what is around us, learning new skills, using what we got and being resourceful, and learning from the wild around us.



Activities include:
Nature journals,
Herbal Medicine making,
Knife skills,
Wildlife Tracking,
Nature-based crafts,
Making survival gear with things we find in our houses,
And more…
