Mountain Mama Programs
Share the wonders of Mountain Mamas together! As part of our community programs, you and your family can milk a goat, collect eggs from our chickens, and explore our organic heirloom gardens and mountain wildlands. Learn about native plants and ecology, make nature crafts and recycled material art, cook with foods from our garden, spin wool from our sheep, explore our nature hikes and more! Under the guidance of our experienced teachers, the possibilities are endless.
The curriculum follows an experiential learning model. Through hands-on learning, teamwork and physical activity, the community develop a stronger sense of self, respect for the natural environment, and are given tools with which to make decisions and choices about healthy food and healthy living. We provide the opportunity and appreciation of growing food, the soil in which it is grown, the animals that provide food, and the importance of composting and recycling. When we make a sensory, positive connection with the natural environment and healthy food, the experience transforms our general approach to the outdoors, nutrition, health, and sustainability.
Mountain Mamas annual Harvest Celebration offers fun, seasonally inspired crafts and activities like scarecrow building, wool spinning, baking and making cheese and butter, among others. You will have the chance to meet our rescued farm animals, milk goats and feed the chickens and ducks. Learn about our native mountain plants on a guided wild lands hike or relax in our beautiful community garden enjoying great local music and delicious local and organic cuisine.
