Join us indoors as we turn the gift shop back into the historic house kitchen of the homestead...OR work with us outdoors to cut away invasive plant species. All ages and abilities are welcome.

Community Fire

October 14th (rain date 15th)

6 PM - 8 PM

We invite you to join us underneath the evening sky as we individually and collectively reflect on this past year and offer gratitude for the abundance that the seasons have brought to us. We’ll offer the opportunity to tour and learn about the school before the fire starts. Then we’ll move into a space of reflection and sharing, storytelling and perhaps even song. Register to join us for s’mores, cool and crisp air, community, and a beautiful fire amidst a (hopefully) star-filled sky.

Please RSVP by clicking on the button below (or emailing rsvp@jsbryantschool.org)

Community Walk

May 21st (delayed because of rain)
10 AM - 12 PM

We’ll meet at the main house and then meander through the fields and into the woods, exploring and sharing what we each know about the plants and trees of the land. Your plant and tree knowledge is welcome as part of our collective understanding of the landscape, as well as curious minds that are new to this type of exploration. For those who are unable to walk with us or who may need a shorter walk, the house will be open for rest and conversation.

Community Fire

June 15th (rain date June 16th)

Our co-founder, Ben, is fond of building fires to gather around, so we hope you’ll join us in this opportunity to sit together underneath the evening sky. We’ll find our way into sharing stories about our lives and the lives of those who worked at the farm, and maybe even break into song.
