Free School: A Success
The 5th annual Falls Brook Free School was a huge success.  Despite the rain on Friday and Saturday learners and teachers showed up in droves to discover new talents, share their skills, ideas and dance the night away.  Over 140 people came from as nearby as next door and as far away as Pennsylvania.  Workshops, activities and discussions ranged from learning to juggle, salsa dance, hula-hoop and fix your bicycle to live painting, raising meat rabbits, building sustainable homes, and a making your ideas a reality.

Falls Brook Centre would like to extend a big thank you to our supporters, funders, volunteers and staff members for a wonderful weekend and especially to everyone who came to Free School, we welcome you back again!
