Homeschooling Girl’s Overnight Camp, Boys Day Camp, and Mom’s Retreat
Girl's camp for Homeschoolers! Two different groups 8-11 and 12+. My daughters are going to this event. I saw pictures of what they did last year and it looks like they do fun and meaningful activities such as sewing, journaling, camping, nature crafts, handwork bracelets, singing, etc.
It's only $78 for Thursday afternoon, Friday, and Saturday morning and includes all food and activities. There are only 12 spots left as of this morning.
More information on Girl’s Camp, Boys Day Camp, Mom’s Retreat & registration:
Lamb and Wool Festival at Thanksgiving Point Farm Country
Our family has gone to this activity in the past and it is a great opportunity to see a sheep sheered and lots of activities with wool. When we went we did dying, spinning, knitting, carding, wool bracelets, etc.
Farming and Biodynamics
Robert Karp, Executive Director of Biodynamics and Farming is coming to Utah this month! We’re hoping to put together a group meeting. You can read his bio below. He is a very important person in the food and farming industry!
Free Spring Planting Festival in Provo!
Classes will be held and Caleb Warnock is one of the presenters.
Community Garden in Provo!
Great opportunity for your children to practice gardening and work on a community project. Provo Community Gardens! Next group work time on Saturday morning!
One of the petals of the Permaculture Flower is Education & Culture. Listed under that topic is Homeschooling & Waldorf Education!!! It also lists Biodynamics as an important part of sustainability.
I encourage all of you to find out more about Permaculture and implement it where possible. I am continuing to learn more about it. To start, I recommend a book called, "Gaia's Garden."
If there are enough people interested in this, lets put a class together and learn more!
