Blue Rock Station is offering a number of opportunities for you to join us for some fun and informative skill building weekend workshops.
Our Philosophy: Our vision when we created Blue Rock Station was to build an interesting and unique learning environment focused on sustainable living practices. Our classes have never been designed for the masses - only that tiny percentage of the population that thinks and explores new ideas. In developing each workshop we ask only one question... Would we want to attend this class?
Small Groups: The second part of our mission mandates that we have fun. So we limit our class size. The ideal size is 6 students per instructor. We have been known to stretch that a bit - but we really do try to keep things small and engaging.
Total Immersion: As part of your weekend experience, your registration includes one night's stay in one of our small straw bale cabins. You will get a chance to experience the quiet snugness of sleeping in a straw and earth plastered cabin, resting in the natural setting of the hills of Appalachia Ohio.
Blue RockStation is a 40-acre sustainability center located in rural southeastern Ohio. We have several miles of footpaths that you can enjoy while here, as well as an operating homestead where you can watch the milk goats, chickens and llamas do whatever milk goats, chickens and llamas do (we may even get you to help out with chores).
We have a number of unique cabins, each one different and special in their own unique way. They are available (first come first served, although some preference may be given to couples over single registrations) for reservation when you register for the class (we can discuss the pros and cons of each location).
Meals: If you arrive before 10:30 AM on Sat. you will be included in a light lunch prior to the public tour at 1 PM. High tea is around 3 PM during the tour on Saturday. Dinner will be Saturday evening after chores. Continental breakfast will be provided on Sunday. Also, we will provide lunch on Sunday.
