Now accepting applications for Spring Semester!
By creating a space for meaningful collaboration and creative problem solving, we believe that a farm can become the classroom for the next generation of change makers.
Farm Raised is The Ecology Center’s suite of homeschooling enrichment experiences for children in grades 1 to 8. Designed for families in search of a holistic framework for their child’s education, Farm Raised is an exceptional program for learning through the lens of nature.
Under the guidance of our village teachers, farmers, chefs, parents and artisans, children learn from the patterns of nature, the philosophy of regenerative agriculture, and the practices of our four seasonal crop rotations to instruct and illustrate foundational curriculum.
Each 12-week session draws from the agricultural work and environmental conditions specific to that season, providing a meaningful framework for internalizing the principles and skills in each day’s lesson. More than just enrichment, Farm Raised offers a uniquely experiential model of education that will resonate deeply with children who love the earth, people and learning.
