Education Programs

Courses and Classes

All of our classes are available for public school, private school/groups, charter school, and homeschool groups. Class series available for all topics.

This is a generalized list of the types of classes we provide. We customize each program for each group, & account for the time of year (for example: Edible & Medicinal Plants class will be different in winter than it will be in late spring). In general, we try to keep a small age range for a group in order to provide the best learning conditions for the students, but we are willing to work with groups who have a larger age range as well.
