From the reseeding of pastures, to the repair of the fence line, the improved health of the horses and the efficacy of the feeding process, Alex has left no stone unturned.

It's amazing how much she has learned - it seems like every day she shares some interesting detail with me that doesn't seem related to a workshop subject and when I ask where she learned it you always turn out to be the source! And she knows it in depth and relates it with such enthusiasm. Thank you for being such an inspiring teacher!”

“As homeschoolers ... we strive to find and fill our lives with those exercises and activities that feed ... our souls. It's easy to talk about finding our passions but hard to live.
