SWMO Free School

Have you heard of a free school or free sKool? While I was traveling up the Pacific coast in 2011 with my hunky love Carlos, we visited several towns that offered free classes of all sorts. In Santa Cruz, CA there was bread baking and how to make goat cheese. In Olympia, WA we found sign language class and free jazz. In San Francisco there’s a circus school! If anything in this world should be free, food and information above all else! We all deserve to survive and THRIVE happily and magnificently.

Fast forward to the present – we’re living in southwest Missouri, Branson to be specific. The daffodils are in bloom, our lettuce and carrots are sprouting in the garden, Spring is on it’s way… Get ready for the Southwest Missouri FREE SKOOL, starting April 1st at Vintage Paris in Hollister! If you live in the area, please stop by Vintage Paris to grab a calender and check out some classes!

It was so easy to make this happen. I recognize the beautiful gifts in the people I meet around me, so I asked some folks if they’d be into teaching a class. All classes are free to anyone interested in learning and sharing. Vintage Paris is a fantastic local coffee shop owned by our friends Jessica and Matt. They are all about gathering the community and creating a beautiful area where we all know and help one another! It’s a beautiful thing.

Anyone can start a free school! You could ask your local library if they have a community space to offer classes. Many local business owners are interested in offering community activities that will create local bonds. It’s a great way to stimulate local business too! We are so thrilled to get this started!!

We are kicking things off on April 1st with a SEED EXCHANGE from 5 – 7pm. Every Tuesday of the month from 1-3pm come in for Herbalism 101 with Lisa Lee. She is a certified herbalist and will be teaching the basics of making herbal remedies! On Wednesdays we have hooping class with Sean Rae Von from 4-5pm. On Thursdays we have Winder Lyons teaching Kundalini Yoga – Union with God and Saturdays I will be hosting a Crochet Group from 3-5pm.

Are there any free schools in your area? Do you attend or teach any free classes?

    • Thank you for checking out the Free School! 🙂 I think I’ll be doing a more expansive version of HOW TO start a free school in other communities later on. I’m so excited to start classes, just a few days away!
