Forest days are always an adventure that children look forward to. This week though, was extra special, since we went to say hi to our neighbor and check out what he was doing in the forest. Jamie had tools with him, along with his safety gear for using them. Children asked what he was doing, he explained: “You know how you take the weeds out of the garden, I am weeding the forest. Cutting some branches of good trees in the forest help them grow healthier”.
Another kid asked: “And what you do with those pieces? (referring to the branches he had cut off) Jaime: “ These are for growing mushrooms on them. How do you think we grow mushrooms on them?”
Child: “With seeds”
Jamie: “Seeds yes, but seed for mushrooms are called spores”
So, families, tell us in the comments, if you heard about this forest day or anything kids experiences at home with nature, forest or chain saws :)
Until next time,
from the Autumn forest,
