Folk  School

The Folk School component of WEI’s new education program is designed to promote sustainable living practices and skill building. These are practical skill building classes that include some of the lost skills of homemaking, cooking, canning, crafts and simple construction and energy efficiency projects. Integral to this project are story telling and writing offered in various ways in every class. WEI is currently seeking artists and crafts persons to offer these courses as part of Down to Earth:  Sustainability and Justice Education.  Inquiries should be sent to

In 2017, WEI will be offering canning and fermentation classes, as we begin to develop this curriculum.
