Forest school with permaculture, kindness and community
2021-22 Compassionate Communities – Time in our life
The Pear Tree Fund and Kinda Education, through the umbrella of Compassionate Communities, ran a year long project inviting people to Kaliwoods and the Pear Tree Centre to talk and walk around the ideas of love, life and end of life. ‘Time in our Life’ plants a seed to nurture a compassionate community in Halesworth and surrounding area.
The Pear Tree supports cradle to grave, local community well being, the edges of well being, including death and dying, that are often not addressed by the main stream systems. Kinda Education promotes kindness through nature connection also cradle to grave, specialising in children with Kinda Forest school.
This project embraces death and dying, aptly starting at Samhain, the time to recall on our ancestors, when the veil between life and the death thin. We open up a conversation often hidden under a table cloth, of something we all experience, the end of our brief lives. A reflection of our own life path, celebrating connection with nature, the natural cycles and systems in the Wood Wild Web, or inside where the Pear Tree grows.
