Den Building – Thursday 6th July 2017, 10:30am – 12:30pm
Venue – Victoria Park, 19 Park Street, Inverleigh.

This is a multi-age event – we will have a smaller cubby town for the younger children + playmats, as well as larger building material (branches/palings etc) for older children.

Please BYO Picnic rug, drink bottles, snacks and lunch, weather appropriate clothing and footwear.

Den building is an important part of children’s imaginative and creative play. It reinforces their sense of self and can provide privacy and a dedicated play space.

We will provide a collection of loose parts (branches, blankets & hessian) sign making & bunting making materials and a venue for children to make cubbies, hide-y holes and play spaces.

We will also offer natural materials for children to make their own face paint!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Walking the River – Home Education Days

6 weeks from Thursday 26th October (more dates below) 

Venue: Leigh River, Inverleigh

6 weeks of playing, walking, investigating, drawing, contemplating what goes on in and around the river.
The Leigh River in Inverleigh is a beautiful spot (a Fox Guild favourite!)
We love walking along the track and soaking in all that the river has to offer.

‘Walking the River’ is a series of 6 sessions where we will focus on water life, including bugs, shrimps, frogs (and we’ll try to catch a glimpse of the local platypus).
As we look at the different vegetation that grows near the river – we will talk about & share our knowledge about several edible weeds.
We will look for our own ‘sit spot’ for contemplation and spend moments drawing and writing in our Nature Journals.

Each week we will share a story and lunch together.
12pm – 2:30pm Thursdays.

The group will meet outdoors each week for the duration of the session. Weather appropriate clothing, footwear & a back pack will help make the sessions more comfortable.

This group is suitable for ages 6+ accompanied by an adult.

Meeting each week from 12:00pm –  2:30pm on the following dates:

Thursday 26th October, 2nd November, 9th November
We’ll have a weeks break on the 16th November, then be back for the remaining three weeks on
23rd November, 30th November & 7th December.

Sessions will be screen free – we ask you leave devices at home (camera welcome!)

Spring Walk & Picnic

Ocean Grove Nature – Saturday 25th November from 11am. (Free event)

We love getting out with other families for a ‘shortish’ bushwalk. The Ocean Grove Nature Reserve is a beautiful little gem tucked away just off Grubb Road in Wallington.

This is a family friendly walk, it is very flat and suited to prams. The walk is approx a 1 hour loop ending back near the carpark where will have lunch in the adjoining picnic area.

Children need to be accompanied by an adults and remain in their care at all times.
While there is no need to book, please send an email (thefoxguild@gmail.com) to let us know you’re coming in case of a change of events.

Please BYO water, picnic, weather appropriate clothing and footwear.

Planting for Bees

Date to be Advised  ($30 per family)

We loved offering this workshop and can’t wait to hold it again.

This is a hands on all-age workshop where we talk about the importance of bees in our gardens and in the food production cycle

We will spend time making seed bombs, bee baths, finding out what flowers and plants attract bees, looking at honey comb and brood comb.

We will learn how to identify drones, juveniles, foragers and the queen bee and…  have a little bit of taste testing 🙂

You will come away from the workshop ready to get out into the garden and create biodiversity corridors in your local area.

All materials supplied.
