Farm & Forest School

Learning to grow food (+ family) together

Our Farm and Forest School has been designed and is managed by Cheryl Charlton (B’Sc, B’Ed) .  As a former high school teacher with a public school board, Cheryl has been homeschooling her family for 18+ years.  While simultaneously running a kitchen-table school room ranging from pre-school age to secondary levels, as 1st generation farmers for the past 13 years, this homesteading experience has opened her eyes to a better way of learning; one that is motivated by learning practical skills that are meaningful and connect with the natural world.  Together with her husband, John Mark, and several of her amazing older children, this family works together to teach, assist, demonstrate and inspire students to work hard, dream big and reach their own educational goals one step at a time.

“Our tiny kitchen-table school room merges into the wide expanse of farm and forest learning each day as we care for livestock, attempt to grow our own food, design and build shelters and fencing using tools, manage a woodland, and prepare for the challenges of the changing seasons.”  – Mama Bear (aka Ms. Cheryl)

We will be designing a Farm & Forest School for each season that will highlight the changes, challenges and fruit that comes from immersing ourselves as the primary consumers and care-givers of the land under our feet.

The foundation of our knowledge will be “creation-based” and simple in its traditional delivery.  We encourage all children to ask questions and develop an inquiring mind, so we will not exclude the ideas and imaginations of one who is seeking truth.

All ages welcome & parents are welcome to stay & learn along-side their child for all our sessions

Space will be limited to 12 students per session and we will offer limited Drop-In spaces each week (you MUST register on-line).  

Pre-Register for the entire 8 sessions and receive a DISCOUNTED RATE

Classes will run rain-or-shine, so send your child prepared with extra clothing for the outdoors.  If you are interested in volunteering to help, please let me know.
