Nature School Cooperative is committed to developing meaningful connections within our local communities. This integral piece of how & why we do the work that we do is collaboratively designed with our partners, from land knowledge to developing accessible programming for all children & families, we are bringing together people and organizations who are passionate about the work they do. It is essential for us to work collaboratively with experts in their field, and to partner together to increase our mutual access to shared resources - we learn best together!

"I live my life in widening circles that reach out across the world. "

We are honored to partner with the folks at Tumfo Tu to share an indoor space, which the students may use for rest, or emergencies, and alternate locations for programs if needed. 

"At tumfo tu, all that we do focuses on the “Self”. Not your person (the material body), but an honest in-depth examination of that inner Self. Coupled with every training level there is a powerful philosophy that permeates your core which aligns with the inner Self to awaken and bring it to the fore its intuitive genius in life activity."

Collaborative Impact Partnership

Co-op Development

Outside Dinner

We are excited to begin a collaboration with The ROCK Center and their youth focused program Peace Warriors and to explore collaborative programming with the local community.


The ROCK Center's mission statement is Transforming lives through mindfulness, arts, healing, and a sense of belonging. Their Peace Warrior program utilizes the circle way as a means of gathering, storytelling, self exploration through art, and exploration of mindfulness practices as a means of coping and healing. 

Cooperative EDU

Co-op Development

As we develop our worker-owned cooperative, we intentionally partner with other co-ops to dynamically support each other. Cooperative EDU is a co-op partnership which we hope to develop as both a back-end business support, and as a staff development & training resource. 


Spirit of the Sun

We donate 3% of our profits as a land tax. This is a small part of the larger movement of Land Back. You can learn more about that movement here.
