The Outsiders' Ranch

The Outsiders' Ranch

The Outsiders' Ranch is a place where kids who have opted out of traditional schooling can join a self-governing pack of life-learners who've made a different pact about "being cool" - one that prioritizes how we care for ourselves, each another, and the one precious planet upon which we all depend.

    Conserving water and recycling properly .  I avoid plastic as much as possible. I had an opportunity to join a garden club but realized some plastic flowers were used in the exhibition and declined because of the shallowness.  Going to set good examples and try my hardest to do the right thing

We still have SNOW, glorious powder SNOW!  I remembered a poem I...
