Water

How long can you go without water for? A few days?

Water is so precious to all life, yet something that we take for granted, never saying thank you. What would happen if our ability to turn on a tap and for clean water to come out was taken away from us?

Our challenges today are of our own making. We have polluted our water to the extent that we can’t be confident we are drinking clean water when we dip our hands into a wooded stream or a mountain lake.

We teach simple purification methods; filtering and boiling. Children learn through hands-on doing. They build a filter with natural materials, or drop glowing, red hot rocks into a bowl of water to safely boil this precious liquid.
