At Village Home, we embrace hands-on learning beyond the classroom walls, so you will discover a large array of opportunities here that appeal to our diverse community members. Field Trips may be academic, environmental, recreational, or cultural in nature. Village Home is often able to pass on significant savings from regular prices, and we always do the planning legwork for you. Workshops are unique, one-time offerings typically held at Village Home. Examples of workshops include our Artisan Workshop series featuring area artists, holiday workshops, visits from the Oregon Zoo, and more. The typical workshop is one to three hours in length. Prices and times vary, see event listing for details. Registering for Field Trips, Workshops, and other special opportunities is fast and easy!
