If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow

FolkSoul Farm is an education community that offers experiential learning programs that are affordable, accessible, and holistic. We strive to serve as a model for social and ecological renewal and educational excellence. FolkSoul Farm weaves culturally-rich Waldorf curriculum with outdoor education through daily wilderness experiences and the practical work of cultivating a sustainable organic farm. 

We at FolkSoul Farm seek to act in increasingly creative, collective and intentional ways while integrating a diverse community of children, families, and mentors. Current offerings include a Waldorf early childhood program, a 1st and 2nd grade Waldorf cooperative, farm stewardship program, community work parties, as well as week long camps during breaks and the summer. Future youth and adult programs include permaculture design, ecological restoration, animal husbandry, biodynamics, and reskilling.
