Mondays in July: 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 9:00 – 4:00 p.m Space is limited .to five people, ages 14+ Cost: $65 each Monday OR $300 for all five sessions Apprentices are treated with respect as capable and contributing participants in the decisions, outcomes, and consequences of choices. Safety on the farm is the first priority. The process of thinking and working collaboratively is at the center of our work together. The demands are physical and each apprentice should arrive expecting to work hard wearing appropriate clothing and footwear. Participants need to bring work gloves, a substantial lunch, and a water bottle. Last year’s participants learned the names of most hand tools, used some power tools under direct supervision, and accomplished a great deal! After an orientation to the woodshop, farm equipment, layout of the facility, and a needs assessment of the farm, tasks will include: Irrigation systems repair and improvement Garden management Construction and salvage of structures Work in the greenhouse Animal handling Woodworking essentials JULY 2ND:     JULY 9TH:   JULY 16TH:  JULY 23RD: JULY 30TH:  FIVE SESSION DISCOUNT: …

Montessori In-Home Consultation

In the hurried pace of today it is so important to set aside time to consider one of the fundamental life building blocks: the family. The intentions set and shared in partnership ripple out into your family life in powerful and supportive ways.

I would be honored to work with you as you navigate the terrain of parenthood.

The work of parenting is an ongoing, dynamic enterprise, one that requires attention and personal reflection. Oftentimes this important topic of parenting is taken up in the late evening hours after children have gone to bed and adults are exhausted.

I am offering to act as a guide for you and your spouse or other support caregiver as you sit together with the intention of considering your child(ren), asking who he/she is, and how you are, individually and as a family, supporting the child.

Let’s attain a greater understanding of your child as we attend to your questions and concerns. 

The love you have for your child ideally should be tangible in the physical space that surrounds him/her.

We can brainstorm ways this can be more clear and refined.We can look at particular scenarios and specific rooms/areas of the home.

  • What times of day seem to flow well in your home?

  • What patterns are stumbling blocks to activity and harmony?

  • In what new ways are you noticing your child developing?

  • How do you envision your family strengthening?

Please contact me to schedule an initial one hour in-home consultation ($75.00).   elizabeth@heartmoorfarm.org

“Elizabeth was so helpful in pinpointing simple additions/modifications to our current routine to include our 3 year old more in the day to day.  This has been so helpful in her sense of independence and joy as an important member of her family AND we didn’t have to buy anything (toys, games, etc) to make it happen!”  -Robin
