Fern Top Fridays is a half day nature immersion homeschool program for children ages 6-10. This program is designed to provide outdoor experiences for children on the farm and in the forest. This is NOT meant to be an academic class, but rather a time for children to explore their environment and connect them to the natural world, all the while working with their hands and each other through outdoor skills and journaling. Nature Studies, gardening, bushcraft and wildcraft are the core elements of this class
Some of the experiences of this class are: making poison ivy salves, whittling, shelters, building fires and baking bread over the fire, planting and harvesting food, creek stomping and using nature journals as a tool for wonder and discovery.
