Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Vestavia: Opportunity to work and learn about organic gardening

~NOTE FROM DEB~  Please note that I do not personally know this person.  He contacted me looking for help in his personal garden.  This is not a business. As always, it is up to each family to decide what is appropriate for your family.  I have included all of the info that I have.  Please use the contact info below for additional information.  

Looking for eager mature people, aging anywhere from ten years old up to teenager years who would like to help out in my gardens this spring and learn about organic gardening. I will need help in putting down newspaper and strawbail hay and planting and weeding and maybe some other garden chores that will teach them how to keep with organic gardening practices. I would like a legal guardian or parent available to be there with the child, exceptions would be older teenagers. I live in Vestavia Alabama near Highway 280 and have had great success with my gardens...I also have fruit trees of all kinds. I can be reached at the email address given,

I prefer teenagers for this. thankyou
