Teachers are preparing materials, the Steering Committee is sorting out last minute logistics, and we are looking forward to hosting students for a full weekend of coursework--all with a focus of tending to the land, ourselves, and each other here in the Willamette Valley.

It is not too late to sign up for a class! Read below to learn about some of our classes that still have openings, and remember that if a class is full you can always ask to join the waitlist.

Our first weekend of 2024 classes is coming up May 11th and 12th--just over a month away! We've also added 3 NEW classes to the roster, including broom making, goat milking, and willow basket weaving! Full and partial tuition scholarships are available to all upon request, and remember that students and their families will also be invited to a pizza potluck the Saturday evening of classes. We hope you'll join us!

In response to the enormous enthusiasm we got from all of you, we are also looking for ways to build a folk education outside a typical class structure, in a more grassroots way. How can we have more ongoing, self-organized gatherings, work-parties, skill-shares, and workshops? What else can we figure out to make it easier to learn what we want and need to learn? The work of a folk school is what we make it. Right?
