we are for students!
We are for students who are still learning to love learning and sometimes still learning to love themselves. Who prefer hands-on experiences, a flexible and creative approach and want to have a say in how they learn. Who want independence and are developing the self-awareness and skills to get there. Who have busy brains, creative spirits and unique perspectives. Who want to wake up every day and be themselves.
we are for families!
We are a place where family members feel safe, loved and celebrated as they grow individually and together. Families who want to learn to struggle less by spending more quality time together. Who want to set realistic expectations and accept one another, communicate better and laugh more than cry when life gets stressful. We are truly a family of families. Each of our stories are different, but our goals are the same: to share peace, love and happiness in our home.
we are for professionals!
We are for educators, coaches, business professionals, creative artists, caretakers and medical/therapy providers who are always looking for resources and alternatives to help our students, clients and contacts find ‘space of mind’ and achieve success. It truly takes a village to raise a child, so the more we collaborate and share ideas, resources and observations, the easier and more engaging everyone’s efforts become.

Day 4 was everything and more! The Farm to Table Foodies learned how to prepare chicken for cooking. Then the lovely Aurora from Aurora's Mexican Kitchen brought in live chickens to teach us about animal husbandry. We had so much fun learning about chickens! The crew also prepared all the veggies for Rainbow Chicken Soup and fed everyone. It was the best. rainbow. chicken. soup. ever. We made the most yummy guacamole and finished with a classic summer activity - canning peaches!
Another fun-filled day of Farm to Table Foodies Camp! Today we juiced apples, carrots, cucumber, kale, lemon and more for our snack time juice bar. Snack also included our yummy dehydrated fruits from yesterday! We also used the leftover pulp to make juice pulp bread! Then, it was off to Bedner's Farm Fresh Market for a tractor ride through the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. We saw a great blue heron, red shoulder hawk, ibis, great egret, lubber grasshoppers, cormorants, coots, and so much more! Of course we went shopping at their market for tomorrows rainbow soup! Can't wait!!
Day 2 of Farm to Table Foodies was a busy one! We went to The Boys Farmers Market and grabbed all sorts of fresh fruits and vegetables. We made rosemary and lemon pickled watermelon rind (and ate the watermelon too, of course!). We had an asparagus taste test with white, green and purple asparagus - Green was the favorite! Chef Neil taught us how to sauté and roast vegetables, so simple and delicious! Lastly, we cut up all kinds of fruit for dehydrating! Looking forward to our apple, kiwi, banana, pineapple and strawberry chips!
