Living Education Adventure Fellowship (LEAF)
LEAF is a community of homeschool families who desire to instill a love of God and His creation through nature adventures and a living education. While LEAF is a branch-off of the nationwide Wild & Free homeschool group (www.bewildandfree.org) and Charlotte Mason inspired, we are eclectic and open to all styles of homeschooling. ♥ Once a month we meet to cultivate friendships and explore nature in the Skagit Valley area. Our desire is to bring our children up in an environment where learning is gentle, joyful, and natural. ♥ Through the LEAF Living Book Club we read 4 classic books per year – one each season. At the end of each season we have an outdoor celebration of the book we enjoyed together with our families. ♥ LEAF homeschool moms meet every fourth Tuesday evening for support, encouragement, and strengthening. We gather to learn and discuss Charlotte Mason inspired education through her books and other sources.
