Our class and retreat schedule at our homestead for 2018

Here at Marblemount Homestead, we teach and inspire people who see things differently.

You're fed up with the status quo consumerism pop culture. You want to live a more wholesome, sustainable, healthier, happier life and be more connected to nature.

We're here to help with teaching skills, inspiration, community and holding your hand. You're not alone.

Come on over to our side of the fence, where the grass is greener!

We are excited to announce that we scheduled our classes and retreats at our homestead in Marblemount for this year. I know some of you want to plan early, so here you are.

Click on the titles to find out more or to register. These offerings can fill up fast, so do it now to reserve your spot. Space is limited in all of them!

Steve and I love teaching these skills, and we can't wait to meet you!

1) Bow making course, March 3rd, 2018

​​​Learn the basics of making your own traditional all-wood bow. A roughed-out board stave will be provided, as well as all the tooling and instruction to have a tillered and shootable bow by the end of the day. Basic archery and shooting instruction will also be covered. 

The price of this class includes the stave and a matched high quality bow string. You will go home with your own bow, ready to make more for your family and friends!

2) Kids Summer Camp, July 15 to 17, 2018

Are you worried that your child spends too much time in front of a screen?
Are you concerned that (s)he is disconnected from nature?
Do you want your kids to have positive, inspiring role models to teach them exciting and useful skills?
Are you annoyed that your children don't want to eat healthy food and wish that they could work in a garden, harvest and collect their own food and help prepare it with experts to guide them?

We can help you and your offspring, because we specialize in connecting kids with nature, where they spend quality time with us adventuring and learning new skills. We incorporate our homestead, gardens and animals with time spent in the wild, where we live at the edge of the wilderness in the Upper Skagit Valley.

3) Adult Homesteading and Wilderness Retreat Weekend, August 11 and 12, 2018

Slow down, connect with nature, unwind in gorgeous scenery, learn homesteading and wilderness survival skills, eat healthy, farm-grown food, connect with like-minded, earth-conscious people and ask us questions about homesteading and wilderness skills.

We are offering our homesteading and wilderness skills weekend camp to teach you new skills and empower and inspire you to live a more self-reliant, wholesome, simpler and healthier life.

We hope to hear from you soon.  Honestly, these classes and retreats fill our own souls, and we know they fill our students', too.

And remember, these classes can fill up fast, so sign up now!

  1. So no cheesemaking in Germany then??

    1. Well... I don't think so. If I had a team of people helping me sort this out, organize and market it, yes. But I'm doing EVERYTHING. It's too hard, I think...
