I love our flexibility with other commitments such as family and travel then be able to pick up where we left off as far as learning together as a group of two families at present (6 children) .....a few more families in the future is our vision.
The children played imaginary games, ancient horses, trampolined, ran in the garden, trucks and lego. Then we decided it would be a good day for Berry Picking a few minutes down the road where the wild bushes grow.
Plenty there for the picking
We half filled our three buckets. This activity has learning on so many levels. Picking from a locally grown source, being in a wild growing spot, which demonstrated the abundance we have if we are willing to look. Gathering food for ourselves, rather than having to rely on supermarkets, shops and multiple handling and travelling of food.
We then brought home the pickings and made berry jam, some of which we shared with Leigh's family in exchange for tomato relish and zucchini pickle.
As well as this we have this amazing location to pick in with stunning scenery all around
Mount Taranaki in the background
The mountain is always inspiring to look at x
