Feywood Grove Folk School is a community learning space located at Feywood Grove Farm designed to create an engaging and inclusive space to host skill sharing workshops focused on homesteading topics, community capacity building, and artisanal skills.  Having the folk school on the grounds of Feywood Grove Farm allows us to offer many hands-on learning opportunities in our gardens, with our farm animals, and throughout the forest and wild spaces that are protected by Feywood Grove.  If you are interested in offering a class in our space, collaborating on an event, or building community capacity with us, please contact us!

Cancellation Policy

We allow cancellations up to a week before the workshop with a full refund or to transfer that fee to another workshop in our series later in the year. In the event that we have to cancel, full refunds are offered to all participants, no matter how late the cancellation. If you cancel less than a week before a workshop, we will be unable to refund or transfer your payment. Because we are a small business with limited seating for our workshops, and supplies need to be purchased ahead of time, we can't recoup those costs. As a small business we appreciate your support and understanding in this matter.
