'Earth as School': Activities for Homeschooling Families and Children

Something Good in the World workshops are based on a philosophy of the integration of learning with nature and the outdoors, along with arts-oriented, sensory, whole body experiences, and are designed for all kinds of learners.  Educators are trained professionals with extensive experience and a passion for sharing nature and the arts with children.  


This year’s Earth School programs for homeschoolers uses the Earth as Homeschool, with the belief that nature is the best teacher and that place-based education offers an incredible resource for hands-on learning experiences.  Our curriculum-based learning and community service-oriented and alternative energy projects are taking place at family farms, nature centers, parks, museums, and art centers throughout the local area.  Space is limited.  Mixed ages classes (5-7s, 8-11s) work together in small groups of up to 12 children with skilled and dedicated educators.  K thru Grade 5 ages meet on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:30 – 3:00.  Grade 6-8 (ages 12-14) meets on Thursdays from 2:00 – 5:00.  For homeschooling families interested in a “Farm Lab” experience, environmental education, integrated with eco-friendly arts, crafts, music, theatre, social studies, creative writing, earth sciences, principles of sustainability, and learning by doing, please email or call for information: 914-217-9249 or  Website:
