Homestead is a place-based multi-age learning community located on 7 acres of farm and woodlands, on Vashon’s Westside. We offer a hands-on, hearts-on embodied curriculum rooted in practices that promote social intelligence and connection to the natural world. Our curriculum seeks to provide children with tools and support for living a full, balanced and creative life by giving equal value to each of the four windows of knowing: feeling, imagining, sensing and thinking. Mentors honor each child’s unique gifts and learning styles, supported by our small mentor-student ratio. Homestead children, mentors and families journey together to create a learning community rooted in compassion,  connection and gratitude.

to Mar 24

Ethnobotany Project

Along with guest instructor Michael Lubrano we will be restoring an area of the Homestead forest with native plants. We have been clearing blackberry, holly and English ivy from the area over the past several weeks.  Children will map plant guilds and  plant out bare root plants purchased from the Land Trust. We will learn the traditional native names of the plants as well as their uses and then engrave the names and uses on copper tags.
