Tiny House Project

Hochoka’s Alternative School allows for students and teachers to have the opportunity to experience education from a very different perspective; outside the walls of the classroom; with animals and nature as a learning catalyst for growth and education. Its main goal is experiential learning.

Come Get Involved

The Tiny House Project has risen out of the Farm’s desire to further help the people who have “aged out” of government services, people that have not been sufficiently taught to work, have proper life skills, or to sustain themselves. Those that will be living in these tiny houses should also be able, at some point, be a part of the building process so as to inspire and teach.

Hochoka’s main program is Healing With Horses. This program encompasses many facets of working with humans, including:
  • Fear
  • Anger
  • Conflict
  • Conflict resolution
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Wellness and prevention
  • Stress management strategies
  • Relaxation techniques
The horse modality is NOT therapeutic riding. This program is curriculum-based and produces behavioral modifications.

The Work of Your Heart

The Healing With Horses program works well because the horses gain the trust and empower the human, creating a love bond that was broken previously. The natural environment works well because most of these people live in a box – a schoolroom, their bedroom, television, computer or electronic game “box”. In nature, they gain a sense of freedom, something they have rarely felt. Their growth occurs outside the “box”.
