Wendy Jackson grew up in rural Minnesota on a “Little House on the Prairies” style homestead. She opened 3 restaurants from scratch, and completed studies in plant-based nutrition. She created a 10-week nutritional lifestyle course, which helped people successfully reverse cancer, MS, and diabetes. She purchased the business, Perfect Pickler and began a lifetime study of gut health and fermentation.
Then Thrive for Good invited Wendy to Kenya, Africa, to teach fermentation at their organic gardening center. This continued until Wendy was hired as content creator to work with a team to create an online course for the extreme poor all across the globe. This curriculum included organic gardening, nutrition education, herbal medicine, leadership skills and income generation. Today she lectures abroad generating partners to join in the effort to end poverty by educating the extreme poor on becoming self sufficient.
Wendy has a love for all traditional skills, and a passion to teach all people a simple, self sufficient lifestyle.

We are so glad we found you. It’s been a blessing for our family.
My daughter has been taking workshops in blacksmithing, Cobb earth building, cooking and leather crafting. She has so much fun with the kids there in the natural environment. Highly recommend any event at the PARC! We love going there! Blessings.
An amazing place with welcoming and patient staff, extremely kind and explained all the activities they had planned in depth for all the kids of various ages to understand. I would highly recommend this place to anyone considering homeschooling their child or just to come out and take the tour.
Jerica A. , mother of 9 & 7 year old children
My son struggled educationally and mentally in the general public school system for years. We tried several schools and the outcome was always the same. The Academy has not only changed my son’s life, but has changed our family’s atmosphere completely. His creativity, personality, and love of learning have truly blossomed.
This place is a dream come true for a child. The only thing missing is Peter Pan!
