Growing Home Family Workshop Series
Gardening & crafting workshops where families can connect, create, and learn together
with Erin O’Neill (SFWS Parents & Tots Class Teacher)
Participants will gather gems that nourish and sustain our families and home life. By integrating head, heart, and hands we can build skills and practices that generate our life-giving creative forces and help practice our values on a daily basis at home with our children. We will learn to grow food, forage and prepare herbs, build things from locally gathered plants, craft toys from up cycled materials and boldly become the makers of our lives rather than merely the consumers.
The workshops will be from 1:00-3:00 pm on the second Saturday afternoon of each month throughout the year with a break in the winter for holiday time.

Winter Woolies | November 9th
Keeping our children warm during the colder months is essential not only to their overall health but to their physical, emotional, and cognitive development. During this workshop, we will be making handmade winter woolies for our children from upcycled cashmere and merino sweaters and learning simple techniques of hand and machine sewing in the school’s magical handwork room. Please note there will be a $10 fee for materials due the day of the workshop.
