Free School Workshops - 2017


New for 2017, Blue Rock Station has launched our “Free School” program. The only cost is bringing a food dish of some sort for the group to share during class.

The goal of the free school is to offer two-three hours of instruction on the third Saturday of each month.  The classes will be taught by former interns and friends of Blue Rock Station. Topics will focus on everyday skills like wood working, bicycle repair, plumbing, sewing, natural health, first aid, self-care, using herbs, simple gardening techniques and spirituality.

During the warm months attendees can stay the night by camping. The evening will include a film and discussion or learning an art form (such as swing dance).

Attendance is by invitation (from us or another friend of BRS) or by getting in touch with Blue Rock Station by telephone (740-674-4300) to register. So if one of the following items is of interest to you – let us know and mark your calendar.
