Learn more about Hermitage Home School Days – Get Back to Nature!.
Did you know Jackson’s name for his home, “hermitage,” means “retreat?” Explore the over 1,100 acres of land, nature trail, and formal garden and see why this name remains perfect to describe the Hermitage landscape! When selecting his land Jackson wasn’t only looking at the beauty of it, but how abundant the resources were on the property. Is water nearby? Will the soil produce crops? Is the game plentiful? Spend time with Hermitage educators learning about how plants were used in the home, conduct your own soil test, and have an up close encounter with feathered friends who call Middle Tennessee home. All activities will take place at the Cabin by the Spring.
