Brookeville/Gaithersburg 

We meet every Friday with a primary focus of exploring and studying God’s beautiful natural world. Second Fridays we meet at a member’s home for mama’s book discussion while the children play. Our Friday meet-ups this year will include: naturalist-led programs, history field trips, seasonal recitation/celebration events, nature special studies and object lessons, sharing of nature discoveries or nature journal entries, and opportunities to take turns narrating in a group.

We have scheduled our meetings in homes/backyards up until mid-February to offer warmth for little ones and others who need it during the coldest weeks of winter.


We are currently discussing Volume 2: Parents and Children
For more information and our group calendar, email Millay DOT Liz AT gmail DOT com.

Thrive Community 2023/2024 School Year

We will meet 12 times during the school year (September-March.  Six times before Christmas and six after Christmas)


We meet 2 Fridays a month from 1-4pm 


This year we had classes in Shakespeare, Nature Journaling, and Plutarch.  We also enjoyed singing the AO folksongs and hymns together.  I'm hoping to offer these same classes next year and maybe even add some more! (Swedish Drill would be fun!)
