This group is an active and supportive community of families with children ages 0-5 and their older siblings. Many of us parent in a more natural way but we do not exclude other styles. Our goal is to bring families together and we meet weekly, mainly in Placerville to Folsom M-F 10/10:30am (we do meet afternoons, nights, and weekends as well).

Our members are likely to support: natural living, instinctual/back-to-basics parenting, natural birth and home birth, attachment parenting, baby wearing, co-sleeping, child-directed weaning, EC, organic foods and gardening, creative textiles, natural toys, crafting, limited or no TV/video games/media exposure, consuming less, living simply, homeschooling etc. However this is NOT a checklist.

Some activities include: park outings, at-home playdates, picnics, making toys with our children, arts & crafts, cooking, fruit-picking, farm visits, educational opportunities, creative play, musical play, museums, zoo trips, river trips, snow play, potlucks, libraries, and more.

To be accepted and remain in the group you will need to:

  1. Attend a Public Event before membership is approved
  2. Have children ages 0-5 (older siblings are also welcome)
  3. Attend at least 1 gathering a month
  4. Regularly participate by planning and/or hosting events

We look forward to meeting you soon =)
