What's New

Starting the first day of Peace Camp 2019, Pat Johnson led a discussion with the twelve participants (ages 6-9) about what makes each of them feel safe.

The camp's theme is about how children have been effective in working for change. This first day focused on Human Rights and Peace.   Pat read a book about Sadako Sasaki who worked for peace following WWII by trying to fold a thousand origami cranes.  We all folded cranes together.

After outdoor games and snacks, the children created a storyboard about the things we talked about.

Have you noticed The Wandering House here and there around Northfield? 
This public art project has converted an ice house, so often a place for conversations and contemplation with friends, into an audio recording studio for collecting Northfielders' impressions and memories about HOME.
