While COVID-19 remains a public health concern, our events primarily take place outdoors.  Masks are required for indoor activities and for the use of restroom & kitchen facilities.  For our residential programs, proof of vaccination is required.  

Volunteeer Day & Lunch – October 16, 2021  |  Sign me up!
Join us as we prepare Tenderfoot’s 16-acre property and buildings for the colder months.  We’ll put the garden to bed for the year, plant fall garlic, gather compostable material, and have lunch together. Enjoy crisp fall air, crunchy leaves, and apple crisp on the menu.

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.

Tenderfoot’s 16-acre home is now available as a host location for retreats, reunions, workshops, 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.  This consideration for personal health, environmental health, and the financial health of our community means our meal cost may be higher than you’re accustomed to.
