Several families cooperating together to create “Freedom to Dream: A Place of Learning”, (which is a self-directed learning environment)  are now gathering each week to work on opening in September ’07 in Novato or Southern Petaluma, CA.

We are currently in search of the perfect site which has been envisioned as a rambling farmhouse on some land with an outbuilding or two. We would like a place to rent or lease or work, with the intention of becoming a self-sustainable learning center by growing and selling our own organic produce.

The video from Fairhaven School in Maryland, explains a bit of the philosophy we wish to continue at “Freedom to Dream”.

“Freedom to Dream” is a place that kids, 8-18, can go everyday to explore their own interests, in their own time, in their own way.

If you are interested in enrolling your child or children, 8 years old and up, please contact me for further details.
