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!
