The NHHomeschoolers site says there are nearly 5000 homeschooled children in the state of New Hampshire, but it had less than a couple dozen support groups listed and no co-ops.  Here in Miami, there are over a dozen support groups and several homeschool co-ops and sports organizations.  My son is an only child and an extrovert :) and when we move in a year, we'll need to connect with the local homeschooling community as much as possible.  Which towns/areas have the most active, thriving homeschooling communities?

Wow, no one's responded.

I don't know the answer, but I'm sure someone does.  Have you found any information on this yet, beechrose?

I would say that we don't have a lot of homeschool support groups because we don't need them.  ;D
I mean, in other states you need them to help fight battles against statist policies - not needed as often or as much here.

Whatever community you land in, there'll be homeschoolers there almost for certain.

I know Margot homeschools her 4 daughters in Epsom. I thought Renee was homeschooling in Northwood. Joe and Denise will be homeschooling in Northwood. I know there's some here in Deerfield, but not Free Staters. I think there's some in Nottingham. I'd love to see more Porcupine families move in to this area.

Renee was over today to help with our roadside cleanup.  She homeschooled her oldest daughter now 20, but does not
homeschool her 2 younger children.  We have a number of homeschoolers in our area.  Primarily in the Portsmouth-Dover-
Rochester area.

Suzanne knows many of the homeschoolers in our area, she is the assistant organizer at http://libertyforum.meetup.com/5/
A good number of our homeschoolser are not associated with a homeschooling organization per say, most perfer unschooling.

Dawn homeschools her girls in Westmoreland (Keene area).

Could anyone pass Dawn Lincolns contact info along to beechrose?  I don't have it, but I bet she would know.

In the Keene area ... there is one group that was started and still revolves around many FSP movers.

The NH homeschooler group that you looked up has at least one person in its leadership that is anti-FSP ... but the average homeschooler family is much closer to our values. :)

There are lots of homeschoolers all over the state. Most freestaters that move are among them.

Here in Miami, there are over a dozen support groups and several homeschool co-ops and sports organizations.
you do realize that Miami has more people than all of NH many times over ... right?
