Our youth programs offer hands-on, heart-engaged, nature connection for ages 8 through 18
Follow animal trails, meet the trees, and tell stories around the campfire. Our protected forest is a natural playground with a creek running through it. Time in a wild settings balances the nervous system, especially when we emphasize connecting with nature and community in a fun, safe and healthy way.
Nowadays, you can graduate from college without knowing the basics of staying alive. We teach hands-on, heart-connected skills for the homestead and community.

Share in the beauty of the farm and forest during your own group visit. Schools, home-school groups, and families can custom design a fun and educational visit. Choose archery, nature connection and farm animal encounters, or create your own. Please contact us for current rates and availability.
We also offer free community nights, for all ages, once a month. These nights are a great time to share food, meet other interesting people, and come for a farm visit. Check our calendar, or sign up for our most recent newsletter for the date of this month's Community Council.
