“Holistic education aims to call forth from people an intrinsic reverence for life and a passionate love of learning, gives attention to experiential learning, and places significance on relationships and primary human values within the learning environment.”Wikipedia
Since 2018, we have welcomed people to the farm who are curious about off-grid living, unplugging from mainstream western culture, and being in relationship with the Wild community. For us, it has been, and continues to be, the adventure of a lifetime; a process of continued learning and growth. Our Vision of this place is about sharing knowledge and connecting with others in the hope that we will find new ways to be in relationship with our food and the Wild community that supports all life.
Our programs offer a variety of ways to become involved in the holistic learning process. Through hands-on learning, group discussion, research, selected readings, and other interactive activities, we explore the following areas of study and practices here at Twisted Roots Farm:
- Permaculture Methodology / No-Till Farming / Intentional Rotational Grazing
- Market Gardening
- Animal Husbandry
- On-site Animal Harvesting
- Farm Management / Regenerative Agriculture
- Small Scale Milling / Ecological Forestry
- Wilderness Awareness / Bushcraft / Primitive Skills
- Nature – Human – Soul Connection
- Way of Council
- Off-grid Living / Homesteading
- Cooking Local Whole Foods in Season
- Conventional and Natural Building Practices
This place, this land, this forest, this farm have changed the lives of many who have come here to volunteer, to learn and to reconnect with the more than human world.
For the upcoming 2023 season, we are busy visioning some exciting new ways to experience the farm and the forest with workshops, volunteer programs, immersions and nature based programming. New programs and offerings will be available starting this January 2023.
