Action description
This program by Edible Routes in collaboration with Deev Datta is a chance for young teenagers (age 11-15) to get connected with nature and learn from Nature in the middle of the city.

It addresses the issue of Nature Deficit Disorder by getting young people outside and into nature – an experience that will offer deeper connection with elements that surround us. This short program allows participants to explore their creative self, bond with friends and Nature, and learn from each other.

The weekend focuses on hands-on learning. Play in nature, work with hands, learn to observe the events of nature and pay attention to our wishes and need are important elements in this.

During the program, participants’ safety, and their (physical, emotional) needs will be taken care of by two experienced facilitators. They will also facilitate the events and their learning.

Program activity: This Nature immersion program brings to young teenagers new experiences and new learning. Participants might experience one night stay under the stars and cook simple meals during the camp. They might build a simple shelter, explore natural elements, work with the soil to grow food, and harvest. Interactive games and reflection allow to discuss what this means to them. Please note that the program depends on the weather and needs of the participants.

Participants should bring: A curious mind, loose outdoor cloths (that can get dirty), close-toe shoes, extra pair of clothes and undergarment, water bottle, minimum toiletries, headlamp, one bed sheet, a small knife (for carving), mosquito repellent, sunscreen. A packing list will be provided upon enrolment.

Please do not bring: food (snacks), valuables, mobile phone.

Note to parents/guardians: Please come for the initial briefing on morning of 2nd September for better understanding of the program, meet the facilitators and see the farm.
