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.

Up Coming Events
 
Family Discovery Days are always a good time. Enjoy a day in nature with the whole family. The next one is Saturday, May 20th and the theme is Critters!

We will be at the May 23rd and June 6th West Asheville Tailgate Market running the Kids Booth!  We are so excited about this opportunity to get out in the community.  The Market runs from 3:30pm-6:30pm.  Stop by, say hi, and pick up some fresh farmer market goodies!

We are so excited to be a nonprofit partner of the inaugural Xpand Fest!  Here is a little bit about it "Xpand Fest highlights music and the arts as innovative tools that are essential for inclusive development and supports the belief that the arts are a powerful platform for social change. We hope you will join us for the inaugural one day event to be held in the South Slope on June 10th, 2017". Find out more here, or on like them on Facebook!


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.
