Sit for nature.

At the Pine Project, we call the practice of sitting quietly in nature a ‘sit spot’. The Sit-A-Thon is our annual ‘sit-spot’ challenge! It’s an opportunity to observe nature without distractions and we’ve found it’s one of the best ways to learn from nature. Each October, amazing individuals like yourself commit to sitting in nature for a chosen period of time, and ask their friends and families to donate to their sit.

Every dollar raised will support families in financial need to attend our programs.

We are deeply grateful for the financial support that has allowed our children to continue with the Pine Project this year. There is nothing quite like it in their lives! My children are more watchful, more observant, braver, and more open to otherness because of the Pine Project. The bursary makes attending possible - what this money allows is ultimately shaping my children, and their children, and our future.
