KÄSI means HAND in Finnish.
Touch, labour, connection, love.
We have worked for many years to develop intentional living practices and projects to enrich our home and homeschool environment. We are happy to have these practices and projects documented in one place to share with you!
We live in a northern climate in zone 5a, but almost all of the content here can be enjoyed in any location.
Erika is an accredited herbalist, small business owner, mother of two daughters, homeschool teacher, and prolific knitter. She has over twenty years of experience in health and nutrition, from cooking to plant medicine. She has been teaching her daughters at home in the Waldorf tradition for nine years, and is now weaving all of those threads into her biodynamic farm in Northern Michigan.
Adam is a homesteader, artist, baker, and handyman. He was formerly a tenured professor of studio art, actively exhibiting and publishing in the field, with a twenty five year parallel career in restaurants and hospitality. He loves to find ways to combine these varied practices, in works of art, works of prose, and the working of doughs.
Our girls can usually be found playing or listening to music, involved in the world of the dollhouse or in another world of imaginative play, or taking care of our companion animals. They both love books on many levels, from reading to making them. They both shine when it comes to handwork, drawing, and singing.
Cultivate seasonal practices.
In the kitchen, garden, homeschool room, or studio, we help you to create from the heart as you connect more deeply to your time and place.
