One of the things I hear so often is – that ‘it’ should be taught in schools, doesn’t matter what the ‘it’ is, that’s the line that everyone comes out with.
But sadly that’s not what happens, when I was at school, we did learn some of the skills I have needed in my adult life, but not in depth enough, and I can assure you I have forgotten a lot of it since then!
I have gone out and re learnt to help me remember, and taken it upon myself to gain many more skills. Not everyone is able to do that, there are many barriers to access hands on skills, not all of them are obvious as barriers.
We want to listen to people, find out what they would like to learn to help them, and find out what skills they can bring to share with the community. What’s your skill?
The list we have made as part of our working ethos is only a fraction of what we could do. And who knows what the long term benefits will be as our society changes, and we head towards a more regenerative way of living in our modern world.
To do that we need somewhere to act as a demonstration model of the hows.
And that is what this series of posts are about.
Sharing our working ethos, so you can understand the why, to inspire you to be part of that journey.
This picture is the tenth page of our working ethos, life skills – you can read the rest on our website ( the open source development of the website is part of bringing community to work together ) www.newforestaquaponics.com
We also have a survey which we would love to get your opinions on how much support we will have for a democratic (one member one vote) share offer to be part of our regenerative farm community.
Please do fill in the survey – it is really important we can show we have the support to get to the next stage. follow the link or use the QR code
