JP Green School is a program for homeschoolers to study and practice sustainability. Young tweens and teens (ages 10-13) are invited to join us Fridays to focus extensively, but not exclusively, on learning the mindset of sustainability through permaculture food growing. We’ll explore many related concepts and practices and skills of cooking and preserving food. We’ll study environmental problems and their potential resolutions. Science and Mathematics will be included in the natural way that they are relevant to the above subjects.
Our philosophy of homeschooling (or unschooling) includes a priority on making a safe, warm and joyful space for young people. Our mode of teaching aims to be both rigorous enough for those whose desire and interest is strong, and relaxed enough for those who are not ready to absorb it all yet.
