Experience ~ Learn ~ Grow
“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 for 2021 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 / Draft Animals
- On-site Animal Harvesting
- Farm Management / Regenerative Agriculture
- Small Scale Milling / Ecological Forestry
- Wilderness Awareness / Bushcraft / Primitive Skills
- Nature – Human – Soul Connection
- Sociocracy / Way of Council
- Off-grid Living / Homesteading
- Cooking Local Whole Foods in Season
- Conventional and Natural Building Practices
Holistic Learning Opportunities

We accept volunteers through the Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms, Canada which we have been a member of since 2017.
School of Wyld Roots: The School of Wyld Roots is a year long immersion into the life of farming, nature based dialogue, land stewardship and self discovery. Follow the seasonal cycle of this hands-on learning journey, where we are co creating the foundational future of a Holistic Learning Cooperative here at Twisted Roots Farm.
