Saw this online and wondered if a anyone was interested in something similar...we have the property to set up gardens, some already started, we have chooks too. Happy to chat and discuss if interested 😀
There is a group of parents that live in a small community near me Who have organized a 1 room school house kind of scenario.
They have 45 ish kids in the daytime ( grades 1-8) ...plus teens ( maybe 20 ish)
⭐️They host school 4 days a week... 3 days are school days,
Day 4 is a sports day, and movieday.
⭐️A local farmer has given the school group space to keep a community garden, And they use the community hall kitchen to teach food studies,
⭐️Food studdies provides a mid day snack for kids
⭐️Fall allows for harvest, learning canning and preserves to provide snack options for the future school term
⭐️The teens are managing the garden and leading games on sports day, they have the parents who rotate weekly as teachers, teens get to tutor the young ones... ( based on skill sets/ natural giftings and talents
⭐️when they have day 4 movie night, the shifts of parents meet to pass the next weeks duties to the next group of parents...
⭐️Dads are taking small groups on the weekends to teach basic car maintenance, carpentry, electrical welding, plumbing and bike repair..
⭐️The older kids assist young ones.
⭐️The older students also take care of end of daycleanup , sweeping mopping garbage removal, recycling, and bathroom cleaning… and making sure kids are signed in and out at the start and end of each day
