Well Being Well Doing
We will use the labyrinth, earthship, yurt and lochside gardens to mindfully connect with nature, be with others in a like minded community, and get creative in a simple and easy way.
The sessions are 4 hours with a lunch break (most likely 10-12 & 1-3pm) with 2 hours spent on Being and 2 hours on Doing.
Being is for you and could be mindfulness walks, connecting to nature through games & sensory activities, creative writing & simple poetry, storytelling & simple visual art.
Doing is the practical bit and also for you!
It could be tending the flower areas to improve the biodiversity of the wildflower labyrinth, planting and caring for native plant species suitable for making uplifting tisanes (herbal teas) learning about plants – making tisanes from fresh herbs, & harvesting & drying for the non growing seasons, learning to make simple structures – bug hotels, bird tables/baths, made from natural and recycled materials to increase biodiversity in the labyrinth recording species of insects, birds and plants.
Session days and times will be updated here or if you would like to join the project please email Paula on firstname.lastname@example.org

Maintenance Coordinator at the Earthship
The Pump House Trust continues to support SCI after our major renovation works at the Earthship last summer through funding a part-time maintenance coordinator’s post. Richard Bennet, who was in the original build team in 2002-2004 starts the position in April this year. Richard will maintain the building, support volunteers and record any changes made to the building.
Youth Climate Stories – funded by the Longstone Trust.
Our Youth Climate Stories project brings together the young and the ancient – and that’s not the teenagers and the facilitators! Young people from Fife will work with storytellers Dougie Mackay (https://tracscotland.org/storytellers/douglas-mackay/ ) and Paula Cowie to tell their ow stories. The project will facilitate what they want to say, and how they want to say it – about the climate crisis and their futures. They will be supported to produce an online presence through whatever means they choose to say what they really mean!
The sessions will culminate in a showcase day where families, friends, local businesses and politicians will be their audience.
