Farm Fiber Immersions

A Place To ReWild in nature

What does a farm fiber immersion include? These programs are designed to give you the chance to immerse yourself in the beautiful ecology of our small farm. You will have exploration time to savor the forest trails, and basque in quiet cabin life, while fostering connection and inspiration from the natural world around you.  During each program, we will offer several scheduled activities.  The rest of your time will be your own to explore, do art, meet baby lambs, or enjoy your hobbies.

Amy is an experienced fiber artist and teacher. She has been arsising sheep and working with wool for 30+ years

Fiber Arts Week-long Immersion with Cabins

July 26th - August 2nd

The Experience 

Besides seeing a small working farm in operation, and spending learning about fiber arts, you will be staying in our small cluster of off-grid dwellings that we call Wilding Village. Several of the cabins are inhabited by our wonderful farm crew who will help make the immersion experience on Wild Roots. The cabin and tent accommodations are rustic and do not have electricity and plumbing. There is an outhouse, wash station, and outdoor shower with solar shower bags. 

 

Each dwelling sleeps one or two people on our comfortable double or single mattresses. We offer clean sleeping bags and bedding or you are welcome to bring your own. 

We recommend you bring a portable phone charger, but we do have an extra battery back for urgent needs. 

 

Price 

The price for the full week-long program is $650

An additional $650 for accommodation in our off-grid cabins during the program (cabin info below)

The Cabins, Your Rustic Home

Scotch Plot Cabin

Large stone steps give way to a small airy cabin nestled along the trail. This cabin’s name comes from old documents calling this land “the scotch plot” presumably because it was settled by Scots. The cabin sleeps 1 or 2 people.

Avalon Cabin

This one sleeps 1 or 2 guests and is a small beautiful cabin painted with magical creatures. The space shines with creativity and imagination! It is overlooking a rock ledge into the woods.

Bracken Fern Cabin

Nestled farther along the path this cabin was the old Growing Wild schoolhouse when the farm hosted weekly homeschool programs. The charcoal drawings of kids who learned on the farm can still be seen on the refurbished ceiling. This cabin sleeps 1 or 2 people.

Raven's Nest

This bright and cozy tent feels spacious and magical. Nestled down a short path, the tent is close to a rock ledge with beautiful woodland views. The spot is alive with bird songs and nature inspiration. Sleeps 1-2 people or a couple and their kids.
