"being fully alive"
At Sassafras, nature is at the core of everything we do, we bring people of all ages in close relationship with the earth, themselves and each other. We see a deep connection with the natural world as our birthright, and as a vital basis for wholesome human development. Our goal is to build community around deep nature connection, that is truly diverse and regenerative.
Sassafras offers nature-based programs and events, year-round on the beautiful island of Martha’s Vineyard. Our mentoring programs follow the natural flow of life and cycle of learning, and immerse you fully in a natural experience. From naturalist, earth skills, tracking, and learning the language of the birds, to creating space for creativity and personal growth, “Nature is always teaching, as long as we pay attention”.
