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.

Do bears really hibernate? How come frogs don’t freeze? Do the farm animals need extra winter care? We will explore how our forest and farm friends cope with cold. We will make sure the farm animals are cared for, look for tracks and signs of animals in the woods, build our own cozy animal den and more!———————————

We will explore all the wet and wild places as well as bring fire to life during this fun-filled day. We will visit puddles, marshy areas, seasonal and year-round creeks and then practice fire safety and build our own campfire. Maybe we’ll even roast marshmallows! We will create some art inspired by these two important elements, spend plenty of time with the farm animals, and cozy up inside for stories and games.———————————
Let’s warm up with yummy food that we cook together! We will make soup, bake bread outdoors, brew tea with forest plants and finish the day with something sweet. In between stirring and kneading and measuring, we will feed the farm animals, go on a forest adventure, create some art, and maybe even make a treat for the wild birds.———————————
