Farm and Forest Community Days, Young Sprouts Group, invites children aged 9-11 to join a supportive community devoted to playful learning, service, and collaboration. Children use their helping hands to support the farm with regular animal and plant care. They develop compassionate hearts through collaborative games, community council and music. With invigorated minds they answer and explore questions about the world that surrounds them while learning traditional living skills and local ecology. A council of elders will support them to develop the skills necessary to follow their passion and calling on this planet. There will be a one-week break for Thanksgiving.
