Our stress-filled culture offers little time or space for people to explore who they are and how they can create positive change in the world. As our society emerges out of Covid, many of us find ourselves spending too much time in front of a screen.
At Lagom Landing people step "into the REAL" of a rural landscape, and learn to balance "head work" with "body work" through a curriculum based in the rhythms of nature, real-life experience, identity formation, and creative exploration. Participants combat anxiety from the daily practice of labor and living in community. Working with their hands in the skilled building trades, gardening, and cooking and preserving food, participants gain confidence, leadership, self-knowledge, and better mental and physical health.
Along with the hands-on aspects of the program, participants critically reflect on our world through reading, Enneagram work, and leading group reflections. Life-long inter-generational friendships are created, and support networks building resilience, empathy, and compassion.
We currently operate a 9 month residential program working specifically with ages 18-23, keeping our tuition at $1,000/month for all inclusive participation (room, board, field trips, and all instruction included). We also have a scholarship fund assisting those who can’t afford tuition. We have recently announced that we will be changing our model to work with adults of all ages in 2023, operating with shorter term immersions into Lagom Landing, but offering very similar experiences.
Your gift on ROC the Day will allow us to support our current scholarship students, as well as transition to be able to serve a wider demographic of adults seeking the gifts of time away and new perspective from working with their hands.
By investing in Lagom Landing today, you not only ROC the Day, you ROC a healthier version of our world, one person at a time!

Help Lagom Landing be able to serve even more people!
In June 2022, we will begin a transition to a model serving all adults. We want to offer the life-giving perspective of Lagom Landing to more people. Every dollar you contribute on ROC the Day will be DOUBLED by a group of donors, and empower us to smoothly transition to this new model.
