Little Wowo’s Weeks 2017

 Little wowo's week will run 16th - 20th July and 3rd - 7th September. Dates are flexible for participants to arrive when they choose. 

Come and join us for a camping experience with your under 5 year olds. We have tailored a week of activities for you and your little ones to participate in a relaxed, outdoor environment.

Go on a mini beast hunt, make charcoal, get messy in natures playground, enjoy story time in the tipi, cook soup round the campfire with other adults on hand so you can guide your budding chefs, and still have time to visit the Bluebell railway for a train ride (or other local attractions).

We will also be hosting a special Nature’s first aid workshop for the whole family to enjoy a walk in our lovely countryside and learn what nature provides for our first aid and health needs.

 

This special tailored week is great value for money, 3 days of activities where all you need to bring is your family ready to get involved and explore the outdoors in a variety of ways. Please note this price is for a supplement, you will need to make a camping booking and provide all your own food*. Camping costs £10 per adult/per night, £5 per child/per night (4-16yrs, 3yrs and under are free).

* Arrival and departure days are flexible, if you wanted to arrive on the Monday and leave one person setting up camp while you join in the activities that would work well, or arrive Sunday for a night to get settled in and explore the campsite. Departure days are flexible. You can camp which ever days you choose, and join in with all or any activities. The price remains the same.

 

£6 per person, babes in arms are free of charge.

Outside Learning with Laura (Tuesday Morning and Wednesday Afternoon)

This will be a workshop with various activities for your children to get involved with your assistance. Laura will be based at one activity where the children need more guidance, other activities will have easy to follow instructions to allow for maximum participation.

Laura thinks ‘The outdoor environment offers so many opportunities for play and learning for everyone, especially children. With a program of fun activities such as necklace making, clay models, charcoal making and fire lighting, children get hands on experience with real tools and equipment. Building self esteem, confidence and most of all having fun creating something they can be proud.

Laura is a regular camper and friend of Wowo.

Herbal first Aid practical workshop and talk - with Alice Bettany (Monday 2-5pm; 3hrs)

Come along to pick up some practical tips for herbal first aid....We will go for a short foraging walk and meet some of the local plants that grow abundantly all over the UK. Basic botany skills will be introduced and clear tips on how to safely identify these common 'weeds' again.  With our harvest and some additional materials back at camp we will learn several different first aid applications ideal for both on-the-hoof use as well as a more prepared situation with a well stocked herbal first aid kit.  You will go away with a list of ingredients, as well as instructions for use, to compile your very own herbal first aid kit yourself at home.  Please bring a notepad and pen, maybe a camera to take photos of the plants for future ID purposes, suitable clothing/footwear for cold/hot/wet weather and uneven terrain, plus a drink.  

Bio:

Alice qualified as a Western herbalist from the college of Naturopathic medicine, London, in 2014.  Alice has been foraging for food and medicine for many years previous to this, mentored by local forager Anna Richardson, this love and passion for wild medicine lead her to her current career as a practicing herbalist.  Alice sees patients from a shepherds hut in Sheffield park at her family home of Wowo campsite, as well as a clinic in East Hoathly called Sussex treatment rooms and occasionally at About Balance in Brighton.  

Alice grows alot of her own herbs at her herb garden on the Sacred Earth land project in Horam and has started an innovative herb box scheme.  The grown and foraged herbs are turned into seasonal products, and herb box subscribers get quarterly herbal goodies with all the information on how to recreate that product again themselves.

Alice runs regular volunteer days at her herb garden, everyone is welcome!  You can get in touch with Alice here.
