Other Homeschool-Friendly Groups in Our Community

The following groups have a connection to and have been of value to Homebuilders Homeschool members. However, they are independently organized and operated. Thus, Homebuilders Homeschool does not necessarily endorse the following groups, which may or may not be for profit. Please be diligent in deciding what would be a good fit for your family. 
Homeschool Harvesters
The Homeschool Harvesters grow yummy vegetables and learn about gardening at a family farm in Brentwood. The cost is $60 per family. The group meets Thursday mornings beginning when the rains stop--usually late April into early May and ends in October. Families should come prepared for hard work during the hot summer with the rewards of fresh produce beginning in late June to October. Younger children need to be properly supervised (work with a parent) as this is a working farm with lots of animals and equipment.
