Enrichment, Apprenticeships, & Volunteering
Holding space for meaningful collaboration and creative problem-solving, our farm is the classroom for the next generation.
The Ecology Center is a supportive homeschooling enrichment experience for teens. Spirit of Play is an experiential program for learning through the lens of nature, designed for families searching for a holistic framework for their teen's education.
Each 10-week session draws from a topic, and each teen coordinates with a facilitator to create a pathway of interest. Through this pathway of interest, teens explore an embodied living curriculum framework. Teens will present a creative project expressing their lived experiences at the end of each session, a learning pathway. Each teen will intertwine fundamentals most parents are concerned with, but in a way, they get to embody and make authentic changes for our future. When children learn in a somatic experiential way, they listen to the body's intelligence, and the body never steers us from our higher potential for self, others, or our environment.
