About Farm & Forest Homeschool

Whether planting trees, baking bread in an earth oven, sharing Jewish tales and midrashim around the fire, or packing Tzedakah boxes of homegrown produce for donation to a local food bank, students put ancient agricultural traditions into practice while participating in a vibrant earth based community.

We learn about soil, seeds, compost, insects, herbs, and orchards, in our fields, our kitchen, and in our tradition, and through hands on growing and cooking projects. Our goats, bees, and chickens provide for our needs while teaching us about animal care and ethics. In the woods, we learn about trees and practice our navigation and safety skills, while learning to build primitive shelters, track animals, and identify wild edibles. Art projects include printmaking, plant sketching, making costumes and paper mache shofars, and tons more!
