Meeting the first Wednesday of each month beginning in September 2022.
"Let them once get touch with Nature, and a habit is formed which will be a source of delight through life. We were all meant to be naturalists, each in his degree, and it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things. -Charlotte Mason, Volume 1, page 61
Plantings Academy: A Community of Learning
"They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord
for the display of His splendor." Isaiah 61:3
An academy of Christian education is established in Marietta. The purpose is to provide a community for families seeking to educate their children toward loving the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength and to recognize and value what is good, true, and beautiful. The community will be following the life-giving philosophy of British educator Charlotte Mason.
Plantings Academy learning emphasizes living books that nourish the mind and develop critical thinking. In our community students cultivate imagination, form good habits, and develop life skills. Most importantly, this is a community where Truth and the love and grace of God are enjoyed each day.

A ministry offering community and support for homeschooling families choosing the rich and gentle method of a living education.
“We hold that all education is divine, that every good gift of knowledge and insight comes from above, that Holy Spirit is the supreme educator of mankind.” -Charlotte Mason
Our hope is to gather in the name of Jesus with purpose. The purpose of fellowship as students learn together on Thursdays and share the same living education. As we meet, the children will take part in natural and challenging discovery, group projects and discussion as they have similar booklists throughout their education.
EEC will offer a tailored curriculum for families using Ambleside Online, a free booking and resource for families regardless of their participation in EEC.
EEC will offer regular support throughout the year to all educators and learners interested in Charlotte Mason philosophy and method of education.

School Schedule: :
I am interested in starting a Charlotte Mason group in Johnson County, Indiana.
If you are in this area, or near it and willing to travel, please let me know! It would be a mother's group - furthering education on Charlotte Mason, a nature group, and possibly enrichment for our children.
I have had this in my heart and mind for some time now & would love to hear from you if you would be able to join in this area!!!
We meet on a bi-weekly basis during the school year. Meetings are an informal, low-stress opportunity for mothers and children to build community while practicing a Charlotte Mason education. The exact format of the meetings is flexible and depends on the input of the mothers participating. We emphasize spending as much time outdoors as possible during all seasons. Activities may include recitation, learning a folk song, doing a picture study, going on a nature walk, drawing in a nature journal, and working on handicrafts together. Activities are designed to interest and accommodate students from a variety of ages, including younger siblings.
I’m Interested in leading a CM group that meets weekly and learns Shakespeare, art and nature study. Open to learning a language together or other academic study. Reach out if you are interested in meeting weekly and perhaps doing one nature walk a month.
We're looking to build community South of KC in Cass County, Missouri. I'm starting a nature club & a Charlotte Mason book club for moms. I hope to eventually expand with other activities including, book clubs, handicrafts, mother culture, a future coop, etc. as we get more families.
