Spread the Feast: Memphis Charlotte Mason Community
“We spread an abundant and delicate feast in the programmes and each small guest assimilates what he can” (Charlotte Mason, Vol. 6, p. 183).
Spread the Feast Community is a community for home educators and families in Shelby County and the surrounding areas interested in learning about the Charlotte Mason method and philosophy of education. Our primary goal is to be a place of encouragement for parents on their homeschooling journey, and to grow in community with one another.
We also provide learning opportunities for the children so they too can grow in community and friendship with one another. Spread the Feast is open to all that are interested in learning more about the Charlotte Mason method and philosophy of education. We welcome CM veterans, those transitioning to CM, those that are just beginning to learn about CM, those that are simply curious about CM, and everyone in between.
We host 2 book discussions a month- a daytime one for adults and kids of all ages and an evening one for parents and "babes in arms." We also have mother culture and family events, clubs (scouting, nature), nature outings, "early years" meet-ups, and more!
This year we are reading In Vital Harmony by Karen Glass.

Charlotte's Web Co-op provides a safe learning environment for children in grades 4th and up to learn and share ideas with others with teachers who have a passion for their subject area. Following Mason’s philosophy of learning, lectures are not present here but serve as a guide to help facilitate the class in the children’s pursuit of knowledge. Knowing that many do not have the opportunity to meet locally we hope to bridge the gap. We also desire to share the load with moms who are feeling overloaded in having to provide the full feast Mason describes. We want to partner with you and help provide a well-rounded education for your children.
We also offer a Mom's meet-up virtually reading through Mason's volumes.
