Some praise from our students:
Lacey and Drew are hands down two of the coolest teachers around, I only wish that they, and the concept of Forest School, was around when I was younger. My girls and I participated in the Spring session of 2021 and we ALL learned so much! Not only did we actually gain knowledge on useful outdoor information, it was incredibly fun! We walked away with a better understanding of nature, survival skills, and healthy living, plus we even gained a few new friends. For the price, seriously, this class is a steal! And especially in todays world, we could all use a little extra outdoor with friends time! I would definitely recommend this place!
Our daughters love visiting their farm and looked forward to forest school each month. I personally appreciate their willingness to take the reins on building community and for working so tirelessly to help people learn and grow.
Our family participated in Forest School from September to December 2021 and absolutely loved it. Our kids (ages 2 and 4) were some of the youngest there, but that didn’t stop them from participating in the nature walks and discussions. My oldest really enjoyed learning about trees, ponds, birds, and seeds, and would often mention the things he learned in the weeks between sessions. He also loved memorizing the nature poems each month and has all of them committed to heart now. I would highly recommend Forest School to any family who wants a Charlotte Mason/nature-based approach to learning. It is so good to see my children soaking up true outside time in nature and learning so much about it. Thank you!
