While COVID-19 remains a public health concern, our events primarily take place outdoors.  For our residential programs, proof of vaccination is required.  

Volunteer Day & Lunch – October 15 | Register here!
Join us as we prepare Tenderfoot for the winter months.  We’ll put the gardens to rest, plant fall garlic, and have a delicious lunch with local fall flavors.  Register to ensure we have food to fit your diet and enough to go around.

Skill Swap  |  I’m interested!
To make every day Earth Day, we’re offering personal training for sustainable living.  As the name implies, all we ask in return is that you teach us something you’re skilled in.  No skill is too small or silly – we can get crafty, musical, muscled, muddy, healthier…We’re game!  Click “I’m interested” above to tell us what skills you’re interested in teaching & learning.

Skill swaps are offered on an on-going basis and are scheduled based on involved parties’ availability.

Tenderfoot’s 16-acre home is now available as a host location for retreats, reunions, workshops, camping, scout outings, or other creative uses you dream up.  Our location is suitable for teams, families, or generally any group with a shared purpose or a desire for togetherness in a natural environment.  Day use and overnight use are available, and prepared meals* can be included if desired.  We can accommodate 8 to 12 overnight guests indoors (based on double occupancy), and plentiful tent/hammock sites are available outdoors.

Contact us at to inquire about dates, pricing, and workshops our team can facilitate. All revenue will support our mission of providing affordable residential programs to teach self-reliant, sustainable living.

*Note about meals:  Sustainability is central to our mission, and the food we serve is a reflection of that.  We source ingredients as locally as the season allows, and we use only organic produce in consideration of personal health, environmental health, and the financial health of our community.
