About Chagrin Valley School

We are a non-profit 501(c)3 school, community center and permaculture farm. Kelly’s Working Well Farm began in 2012 with the goal of creating a place where community members could come to learn about sustainable agriculture, make crafts using natural materials, and connect with animals and nature just minutes away from downtown Chagrin Falls. Summer camps for children have been held at the farm every year since 2013, and in 2016 our school was created. Chagrin Valley School is a full-time self-directed learning school run by student democracy for ages 5-18.

We invite all members of the Northeast Ohio community to participate in our permaculture enterprise by attending our community building events. Attend our family game nights, movie nights, pancake breakfasts, pizza parties, enroll in our summer day camps and/or democratic school, participate in our community vegetable garden, planting trees, join in natural building projects, or just visit with the chickens & goats!
