Marybeth Legler, our Woodland Wee Folk teacher, will be leading this camp.

She loves to create space for children to simply play and be children, and enjoys sharing observations and ideas to support healthy growth and development with parents.

Why having children on our farm is important to Foxhollow’s mission: “To model for them that things can be done a different way. To help them – and us – understand that slowing down, listening, and simply being together and present with one another, is okay … To thrive and create harmony inside and around us by feeding our bodies food, activities, and experiences that are full of authentic life and vibrancy.”
