More than a thousand groups from all over the world have come together under the banner of Wild + Free for gatherings, such as:
Wild + Free groups are for homeschoolers, nature lovers, and those who have simply resonated with this community and want to know more. No matter what approach you take - we're all in this together.
This beautiful homeschool community is meant to be a welcoming place for all. No curriculum, race, philosophy, or religious affiliation should get in the way because we have so much to learn from each other. We want every group be open to all mamas who desire to give their children a quality education, while also preserving the adventure and wonder of childhood.
Andrea Pratt has been a vital part of the Wild + Free community for the past several years. As a group leader and bundle contributor, she has poured her heart into the Wild + Free community on a local and national level.
Her family has also been instrumental in developing the Wild + Free Farm Village through their hard work and generosity. She's recently joined the leadership team for Wild + Free conferences as well.
Andrea has extensive experience coordinating groups for other organizations, and we're blessed to have her organizational gifts and compassionate heart for the families in this community.
She's excited to serve our group leaders and help the Wild + Free community be a source of inspiration, encouragement, and support for mothers all over the world.
Andrea is married to Andrew and the mother of three children: Violet, Sybil and Emmett. They live wherever the Air Force sends them. She sticks to three simple principles: live simply, love generously, learn constantly.

A note about fathers: We believe fathers are vital to homeschooling, and we love when our groups plan events that include the whole family. But as a whole, Wild + Free was created to support homeschooling mamas. Our members say they feel more comfortable when events are mama-only, so our groups are considered to be for women and children only. This opens up lines of communication and allows for everyone in the group to freely share. With our annual family camp in Colorado and the start of the Wild + Free Farm Village, we plan to hold more events for fathers, but these are separate from our groups.
