Soon after my husband and I made the decision to homeschool our children, I attended the first Wild + Free conference in Virginia Beach. My involvement in this awesome international community has influenced my homeschooling and parenting in more ways than I could describe. After returning home from that conference, in hopes of a similar community right here at home, I started a local chapter—Wild and Free South Florida. This group has grown tremendously and has become a wonderful tribe of like-minded families, which I'm so thankful to have in my life!
A year ago (how has it been that long already? I have no idea.), we visited a local organic farm for Earth Day. Kai Kai Farm is located in Indiantown, FL. Their mission statement is "Grow and package fresh, safe and nutritious vegetables which customers want and are willing to pay a fair price for, enabling sustainability, growth, and innovation in fresh produce production."
It seemed the perfect place to bring our kids to celebrate the planet. The farm provided crafts, a wonderful tour teaching us about some of their sustainable farming methods, and even a drum circle, making it truly a perfect day.
