Need Financial Aid? Click here.

Our financial aid philosophy is take what you need and give what you can. We recognize that there are economic hardships, and we want to be accessible to all, so we ask that you pay whatever it is that you can.

The more you can pay, the more children we are able to extend aid to. Before you request financial aid we ask families to consider if there are family members or friends who might help provide a scholarship to your family for this program.

While nobody has ever been turned away for lack of funds, our ability to accommodate financial aid requests rests on the strength of our program enrollment and the generosity of the individuals, businesses and foundations that partner with Wild Earth to make financial aid possible.

We're in this together! Many of us are stretching ourselves to make sure that cost doesn't get in the way of anyone playing, exploring and learning in nature.

How to ask for aid–

Requests for financial aid are processed alongside your registration. This enables you to reserve a space in the program while our team is reviewing aid requests. Register now and reserve your space in Coiled Pine Needle Basketry today.

Coiled Pine Needle Basketry

Learn the art of creating coiled baskets using long-leaf pine needles.

In addition to making a small to medium sized pine needle basket, you will also learn the history of this art form, spend a day in good company creating a one of a kind piece of art, and come away with the knowledge to make many more baskets.

You will have the opportunity to learn several different decorative stitches and create a unique basket using a variety of different wrapping materials and embellishments in addition to pine needles.

This class is good for either someone that has some basketry/sewing experience or enjoys working with their hands on a small scale project. Beginners are welcome!

Please contact Katie at with any questions.
