Autumn Bounty Nature Event from Chinese Perspective

I recently just wrote a blog about organizing nature activities in China, from an American perspective. Here's a blog within a blog, from a Chinese writer. As we have held our last few events, a lovely photographer and writer has joined us to record our time together. Though the comments to the photos are in Chinese, the photos are easy to review. I also just use Google Translate for fairly good and very quick translations. Here are the blog links:…

The Power of the Children and Nature Movement in China

If we are visiting these sites, we already understand the power of this movement, to liberate our children, and ourselves, back into playing in nature. I am compelled to add to the proof at just how natural and permeating this movement is, in China. This is too long for a blog, but I can not resist sharing.





My vantage point is as an American mother raising two young children in urban China. We…

One Hundred Blessings Organic Farm Family Nature Club Event

We met at the same busy street corner, where parents consulted about directions to our destination, a demonstration organic farm about an hour outside the city. This time we were a

carpool of ten cars, winding through the karst hillsides of the Guizhou

countryside. Along the way we passed another “Club” consisting of youthful bike

riders. As the numbers of participants in our excursion grew, and as we waved

to other gatherings…

Family Nature Club Outing to Confucius Farm, Guizhou, China

It was, already,

a few weeks ago that we visited a very special place, removed from the electronics

and fast pace of the city (the swift current of this life unfortunately made

this blog a little late, too). Four families met at a bustling Guiyang street

corner and were led out of the city and through the familiar twists and turns

of the Guizhou countryside. Our destination: a Confucius…

Hi Katie!  Where in Colorado are you from?  I live on Hastings Mesa in between Ridgway and Telluride...Last Dollar Road :-)

 

I got really excited about the possibility of Earth Scouts happening in China and yes I understand your process and thoughts.  Your little boy is very sweet - I love your photos!

 

Thank you and look forward to continuing the connection and conversation!

Hi Katie

 

I'm sorry it took me so long to "approve" your membership to the International Group. Normally I get a wee alert in my inbox to tell me but for some reason it either didn't happen or I missed it. Lovely to meet you and I hope you are enjoying your homeschool life in China.

 

Best wishes

Juliet

Hi Katie

My name is Dawn and I am the admin of the Earth Scouts Networkwhich is a program ran by the Earth Charter U.S. organization.  Here is a link to the Earth Charter site in China

So far the Earth Scouts have been inside the U.S. borders mainly and it would be awesome to migrate/import the concept into China.  I look forward to hearing your thoughts about this.

Hi Katie! Welcome to the forum. I'm familiar with your wonderful work through our Movement Map on the cnn.org web site and I'm glad you're here. Thank you so much for posting your wonderful photos and blog and for giving us a taste of your life and nature club in China. I look forward to lots more of your contributions and hope you also get a lot out of the community and its various groups. Cheers!
