During our 4-week, general public program, participants learn what diversity in nature has to teach! Nature is a community made up of many interrelated living systems connecting us as kin. We explore our Long Island “learnscape” and its plants, animals, land and water via hand-on activities and multiple mediums. Teens and young adults with a range of abilities are introduced to a series of heart-centered nature and wellness workshops and activities from an interdisciplinary perspective while enjoying camaraderie and minimizing anxiety. Educational exploration is guided by our educators, farmers, peer-mentors and community partners. Weekly topics are announced pre-season. Opportunities for team-building games and problem-solving experiences are incorporated. Summer at the Sangha takes place Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11am-3pm from the second week of July through the first week of August with a morning and an afternoon session; lunch break in between (bring your own). Open air tents are set up outdoors. Indoor space at Historic Malcolm House is utilized for some workshop components. Raindates are scheduled at the end of the season, if needed.
