Cedar Dell Forest Farm's Homeschool Program offers homeschooled children in grades Kindergarden - 6 the opportunity to experience the unique blend of forest and farm that our property provides. 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.
