Homeschooling is becoming more and more popular in North America. We have all heard of it, but most of us don’t know exactly what it entails and we have many questions surrounding it.
In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we speak with Julie Piatt (SriMati). Julie is a plant-based chef, singer, songwriter, yogi, mother of four, and wife. Julie and her husband, Rich Roll, are the coauthor of the family lifestyle book, The Plantpower Way. She helps us answer some of the questions behind homeschooling. Julie has homeschooled four children in many different formats including a hands-off approach. She shares her own perspectives on homeschooling and the benefits and advantages of life experiences. She is currently completing a book about unschooling and we look forward to seeing it published very soon.
