Child care: We have two children and fully understand how all consuming those early developmental years are. We will offer free on-site child care for most of our in-person programs. Please email Colleen to discuss child care options.
Sliding scale pricing: Whenever possible we offer multiple pricing options to make our programs inclusive and help share the abundance. Community Supported is below cost, Self Supported covers the cost of participation, and Support the Community covers you and the difference in one community supported rate. All participants receive the same resources and level of instruction. We also encourage you to reach out directly to Greg to arrange a different way to cover the cost such as barter, work trade, or payment plan. Partner run events may not have these options .
