Today was all about learning new skills and having a hands on experience under the tutelage of some incredible craftspeople from right here in Cornwall. Blacksmithing, stone carving, silk screen printing, green woodworking and the making of bushcraft projectiles were all on the menu today and environmental adventurers worked in small groups to make toasting forks, t-shirts, arrows and much more.
Delicious meals were served up by the cooking crew in the kitchen while the harvesting team returned from the garden with enormous cucumbers, oddly shaped courgettes, edible flowers and zebra tomatoes. A baking hot afternoon called for an impromtu water fight and a welcome drenching to cool down!
In the evening we were joined by some incredible birds of prey which hunt the skies above us here at camp including a Barn Owl and Buzzard and the day was topped off with S'mores around the campfire. Tomorrow we can look forward to technical tree climbing deep in the forest and a visit from one of last year's camp volunteers who has returned from an expedition to the Artic and will share with us some of her team's findings about the micro plastics pollution which can be found there.
