Nature, The Greatest Teacher

Jul 19, 2019

Wow – we did it! Aishling Forest School is so proud to have hosted the very first USA-based Forest School Association Leadership Training this past week. We laughed, learned and loved and now the movement to connect ourselves and children to each other and the greater world around us is spreading like wildfire! It’s our birthright to be and to learn in nature and there truly is no greater teacher or classroom.

“It was an amazing experience to be able to bring Forest School Association (FSA) endorsed leaders to the U.S. for the first time,” says founder Jordan Manfredi. “People that have had over thirteen years of experience: some Montessori School trainers, some Waldorf School trainers, some nature-based outdoor educators, all thought that this was the most comprehensive leadership training that they’ve ever been to.”

Through a week of hard and intensive work, Aishling Forest School, in collaboration with the FSA, fostered a comprehensive experience that included practical skills, planning, creation of a handbook, as well as a six-week pilot course.

To us and future generations…let’s do this again. Thank you to our home in the woods, CEED for hosting us and to our amazing trainers from Huathe.
