We are taking a Research and Development year! (R&D)

On first Fridays, Mystic Grove and friends write new “wheel of the year” curriculum for the MS/HS/Adult level for publication at UUCards. (https://www.uucards.org/) We also hope to make it “homeschool friendly.”  This R&D is led by Cat and Lady Jai.

If you would like to be a part of this project feel free to drop in on 1st Fridays.

Teens, parents, grandparents, pagans, and UUs who want to learn about the Wheel by helping to create curriculum and “test drive” potential activities welcome!

Please Facebook RSVP so there’s enough supplies on hand.
