Asheville Farmstead School is a non-profit outdoor farm-based school designed to teach homesteading, natural sciences, life skills, sustainability, and agriculture to children and families. The goal of Asheville Farmstead is to connect students to an increased awareness of the natural world, the complexities of agriculture and the interrelations of living communities. We serve preschool youth, summer campers, schools, groups and nature-loving families.

Like many organizations, we have our own language at Asheville Farmstead. Instead of running classes on semester terms, we call them "Seasons" because they line up with nature's four quarters. Additionally, we divide each day between the "Field" and the "Forest." Learn more about our seasons and daily routine here.
