I studied agriculture and ecology in my self-designed major at Hampshire College. I am familiar with the homeschooling pedagogy from my own experience searching for alternative education models for my undergraduate degree. I have presented at organic farming conferences about soil grown sprouts, managed farms and gardens professionally, and taken several natural farming workshops. I am a self-described ecology nerd and take pride in knowing the local plants and animals of my region. I have taken many plant walks with professional herbalists and I am familiar with the wild edible and medicinal plants of New England. 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
