We have all had such a lovely day at the Outdoor Learning Conference that was held at Hellens Manor today. Brilliantly run, amazing setting, speakers and workshops, lovely people and a fantastic lunch! Wow! Thanks to all that worked so hard to make it a success!

Two exciting things, friends:

First, I am almost ready to announce my first LIVE, not "online live" but REAL IN-PERSON event—outside and spacious and full of fresh air and movement—for the launch of Grow Wild. Look for info on that coming this week.

If you don't live near by, then we are having an ONLINE, LIVE LAUNCH PARTY for Grow Wild and you're all invited! This event is not only to celebrate but to start off Grow Wild readers on the right foot. At the party:

*ask questions and get clarifications about the book’s content

*we’ll be raffling "get kids moving more" prizes—one for each of the seven environments covered in the book—from Wildling Shoes Softstar Shoes Wild Math Smart Playrooms Venn Design PlanetBox Outback2basics

*we'll be sharing other special handout sheets that will help you turn the ideas in Grow Wild into action.

There are a few weeks left to go to http://growwildbook.com/ to pre-order a book and get a FREE PARTY TICKET, or if you're outside the U.S. and Canada, or waiting for the audio or e-book just grab a ticket without a book.
A StoryWalk spotted on our last park-walk (thank you Jefferson County Library, Port Hadlock). StoryWalks consist of a book’s pages laminated and placed on signs along the length of a trail—they stack reading with walking, bending, squatting, and nature/outside time for a family.

This book, Play Outside! by Laurent Moreau is a great one and also happens to be on my list of 30 Books To Connect Kids (Toddlers to Teens) to Nature: nutritiousmovement.com/30-books-to-connect-kids-toddlers-to-teens-to-nature/. Check it out and find a list of titles by LearningHerbs.com Jo Loring-Fisher Illustration Peter Brown Studio Doniga Markegard Outback2basics AND MORE that will let story guide your child to moving more through nature.

My favorite page of this book is at the end. "Mom, you look a little tired. Why don't you go outside and play."

Hi there,
After a strange old year with lots to reflect on we are ready to come back with a boom (Stone Age style) and we wanted to get back in touch with all of you who have supported us in the past and let you know about what Outback2basics has in store.

Stone Age day

The big change here is our pricing structure. We now only have two prices for our Stone Age day.
1 class £400
2 classes £600

(dependant on where you are located there maybe a travel cost).
Our hope is that tis will make our workshops more accessible to all schools.

As it was before, you can either come to us in our woodlands or we can travel out to you delivering a cave person in your classroom.

The other change is that we have invested in a marque for our woodlands making our sessions more accessible in all weathers.

Zoom into the Stone Age - Stone Age online!

Due to the restrictions linked with Covid we are now proud to able to present you with the opportunity to access our Stone Age workshop, in the safety and comfort of your own classrooms, with a live Zoom session streamed directly into your classroom!
Have a look at our advert here: https://youtu.be/_94ceESnzHM

You can find more details about our workshops on our website https://www.outback2basics.co.uk/stone-age/stone-age-full-day on email us to book a date.

Other exciting news
In 2019 we filmed a 3 part documentary series for Channel 4 called “Surviving the Stone Age” https://www.channel4.com/programmes/surviving-the-stone-age. It follows our adventure of living in the wild as a Stone Age tribe of hunter gatherers travelling through the Bulgarian wilderness.
So If you want to have real cave people in your class room or at our woodland site, sharing their stories and showing off all of their real life cave gear from spears, stone tools, furs and pots please get in contact!

And if you book your session by the end of April you will receive a 10% discount only available through this email. When you contact us to book, mention the discount RETURN10 and we will add the discount for you!

*Zoom sessions not included in this offer.

We are looking forward to seeing you and bringing the past to the future!!!!!

All the best
