Tuesdays & Wednesdays after school till 5:15 pm with Arina Pittman. On certain weeks, single session due to other academic activities at the school. Materials & wholesome snacks included
I invite you to join me for a season of after-school TerraGirls activities. As TerraGirls, we will engage in weekly, land-based, creative projects. We will be baking bread, harvesting apples, drying herbs and making cold season remedies, dipping beeswax candles, spinning wool and sewing. Our projects are slow, delicious and grounded in the beauty of gardens, orchards, heirloom recipes and traditional skills.
We will gather twice a week, so we can start a project on the first day, and continue working on it on the following day. When we bake, or make cheese, or brew medicinal potions, it is helpful to have our project span over a period of two consecutive days and beyond. Most of our time is spent in our school’s outdoor kitchen. On occasion we will venture out for fun field trips to neighboring orchards or to see backyard farm animals. In winter months we move indoors for baking and candle dipping. In spring, we plant our school’s greenhouse and garden, and work with sewing and spinning wool.
TerraGirls will need to have a journal, and their own regular size tea mug and saucer for our tea time. Our traditional home-made Apple Charlotte Cake will be served every session, at tea time.
I am looking forward to seeing you in our circle!

This School does an amazing job. I have been teaching there 15 years and seen class after class of girls change into their own womanhood and power. It is the most thoughtful staff and curriculum I have ever encountered.
