Hi! I'm in Clarksville! I haven't lived here but maybe a month, but I use a Waldorf-inspired curriculum (not a purist, though, by a long shot, and still learning a LOT). I haven't found any homeschool groups. Well, there is a Classical Conversations, but I can't afford it. Crime, well, it's better than some places I've lived, but I definitely lock my cars at night. It's a good sized town, and military, so lots of people moving around. Depending on the size of house you want, I'd say average would be $900-1000, I think. I hear it's cheaper on the KY side, but KY homeschooling laws aren't as easy. Homebirthing is pretty good in TN. I'm not sure of the exact laws, but there are a lot of CPMs around, I know, and The Farm is about 3 hours east, I believe. I SO SO SO want to train at The Farm someday. ((sigh))
Welcome to Clarksville! We have a growing and thriving Birth Community, with a facebook group of over 200 members. Lots of moms there, sharing info and learning together. Many are expecting, many have little ones, all are here for networking and support; with a slant towards natural and green living. We have a monthly playgroup gathering, too.
The previous poster is correct, there are a lot of homebirth midwives in TN. We have a list of professionals (midwives included) posted on our FB group, if you're interested.
