In small groups of up to 12 students, these weekly classes blend open-ended nature exploration and farm life with science inquiry. Each week time will be spent outdoors in the forest and on the farm, practicing homesteading skills such as outdoor cooking and carding wool, organic gardening and animal care while also learning about forest ecology and environmental stewardship.

It doesn’t get more local then this! Learn to create beautiful colors from two species of lichen and a mushroom that grow right outside our door. Together, we will dye samples of wool and silk fabric as well as wool yarn to see how different fibers take the dye. Additionally each participant will dye a silk throw pillow cover to take home!

This beautiful blue dye comes from the indigo plant! In this workshop you will learn to create and use an indigo dye vat, unlocking the mysteries of this pigment that has been used throughout the world for centuries.
We will also explore the art of shibori dyeing - a technique of creating patterns by folding, using objects as resists and even stitching. There are infinite ways to manipulate fabric to create beautiful, unique designs and everything necessary to try out numerous techniques will be provided.
Come experience the unique blend of forest and farm that our property provides with your child! This 3 hour program includes art, stories, animal visits and outdoor activities.
Pollinators help our food grow! From bees to hummingbirds, beetles to butterflies, we’ll learn why these helpers are so important. We’ll inspect flowers to see how they attract pollinators, search for pollinators on the farm, play games and plant a flower for home to attract pollinators to your yard!
