Unfortunately money is one of the few things that does NOT grow on trees…
Our volunteer organizers are working hard to create an affordable event.

We hope to make this an annual gathering. We need community buy-in.
All donations and sponsorships are tax-deductible.

We are a project of Kelly’s Working Well Farm (KWWF) – a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  KWWF is a democratic education farm teaching children (and adults!) practices and principles of sustainable agriculture, natural building, and social permaculture. KWWF gave birth not only to Reeds & Roots Skillshare, but also Chagrin Valley School!
