Homestead Economics is a exciting and innovative education program offering homesteaders aged 8 and up the opportunity to experience the building of an urban homestead. We will learn the traditional home based arts including organic gardening, animal care, natural medicine, knitting, cooking, sewing and anything else that captures our interest.
Homestead Economics offers two programs. For school-based homesteaders we offer a schools out program for those days that school is not in session. For homeschooled homesteaders we offer a school calendar two-day a week program.
Not only will the students be learning and exploring their world they will get an opportunity to learn about economics as part of the program includes the option to sell the items grown and made by the Jr. Homesteaders. They will learn marketing both online and in-person by attending craft fairs, bazaars and other markets. 100% of the proceeds from items they sell will be theirs to keep.
All programs have a 10:1 ratio to ensure personalized attention and maximum learning flexibility.
