We offer Both Adult Rural Arts and Youth Nature Studies programs.

our courses are taught on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State.

our mission is "hand to hand" instruction to all ages and backgrounds.  Our goal is to deepen our understanding of the natural world and bring the skills of self sufficiency into modern living.

Each of our 40 skilled instructors  place a high value on craftsmanship, skill building and inter-generational mentoring.

Courses follow the seasons and the traditional skills of rural living.

Walk into a class at CedarRoot School and be surrounded by the sound of working hands and creative minds. CedarRoot teaches skills for living...a revival of our whole person and the power of participating in our own sufficiency. Our focus is on hand to hand instruction to all ages and backgrounds, hoping to deepen an understanding of the natural world, and bring these skills of sufficiency into our modern life.
