Fort Collins, CO
I'm a CM (Ambleside Online) mom who leads a weekly hiking group for moms and kids in & around Fort Collins, CO. Some weeks we have 2 moms + kids, and some weeks we have 5-7 families joining us. Very low key, but consistent! Kids range in age from 4-10 ish, some hikes are stroller friendly and some are not. If hiking & nature study are your thing, we'd love for you to join us! (Thursdays at 1:30, year-round)
... your children will be like olive shoots around your table. " (Psalm 128:3)
We are a community of Charlotte Mason homeschooling mamas and children named "The Olives".
I started this group some years ago (with just one other family) when we moved to Johannesburg, South Africa. My prayer was to find community, to build friendships, to support each other and to learn together..
God has been faithful and we are now a community of nine families! Our group is blessed by so many different strengths and talents and each mama and child bring something precious to it.
We meet every second Friday for a couple of hours to sing folksongs, read poetry and to do nature study together.
Mums also meet for a monthly book study and we have family gatherings at the end of the year.
The Fisher Library at the Avenue is a living books library serving families in the Texas Hill Country since 2016.

This is a small 4-family Co-op for Fort Worth area AmblesideOnline families. To be considered, you must have at least 1 teen or tween using AmblesideOnline and meet other current needs of the co-op. We are currently seeking 1 more family with teens year 9 or age 14 and up.
The Truth, Beauty, Goodness Community (TBG) is our long-standing (over 14 years!), beauty-filled offering of a homeschool community built on one particular philosophy of education – that of Charlotte Mason. At different times, we have had all ages in our co-op, only elementary age students, and only high school students. We love to share and encourage others who wish to start learning cooperatives where many hands (teachers) make light work and allow moms to implement the fullness of a Charlotte Mason education.
Visit our webpage for more information and resources that we love to share! Presently, we have a Form 3-6 group (TBG Teens) and a Forms 1-3 group (Spreading the Feast).
A discussion group for educators to encourage and support each other in our journey to teach. Our readings are from the writings of Charlotte Mason.

This christian Charlotte Mason co-op meets twice a month for learning together through nature study, singing, geography, scouting and more. Additional activities for the whole family or moms only help build our community between co-op meetings.
I am looking to start an in-person book discussion group for Charlotte Mason moms. We will be diving into CM's volumes along with other Charlotte Mason focused books. I am hoping to help anyone looking for community but not a co-op, moms who are new to CM methods, or moms just wanting to dive deeper into a Charlotte Mason education not only for their kids but for themselves. I am looking to meet every 4-6 weeks. Meeting places may vary from coffee shops, libraries, parks, etc.
We are located in the Boulder area, including Broomfield, Lafayette, Louisville, Longmont, and Firestone. We meet one evening a month to study and discuss one of Charlotte Mason's volumes each school year. In the summers, there are nature playdates that include children. Some of our families also participate in a one-day-a-week learning community during the school year.
Event for parents
The Living Education Retreat (LER) is an annual weekend event that focuses on the philosophy of Charlotte Mason. People from all over the world gather to consider a living education through deep discussions, shared meals, outdoor activities, beautiful worship, and inspiring presentations. This is truly a retreat. We want it to refresh and revive your heart, soul, and mind so we practice the Charlotte Mason philosophy in how we form the retreat by scheduling time for pondering, processing, and playing. It will be July 7-9th, 2022 at Lake Koronis, MN. We are in our 16th year!

We are a CM community located in Searcy, AR. We are a 501c3 and have volunteer and independent contract teachers teaching CM subjects. Classes and schedule vary with each term.

Our signature classes that we have most every term are: Shakespeare, Ballet, Folk Dancing, and Liaterature. Our aim is to create the best possible atmosphere for kids to learn and for “Cottage” day to be every kid’s favorite day of the week. We also regularly hold CM Volume study groups for parents as well as the Natural State Charlotte Mason Retreat.
“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.
