This workshop is designed for farmers, farm-based educators, and non-formal educators.

Are you looking to build a farm-based education program, or inspire your existing programming? At this workshop, you’ll fill your toolbox with kid-tested, educator approved activities, as you join a community of peers from around the region.

Spend three days in hands-on, activity-based learning, and explore Shelburne Farms’ dairy, farmyard, garden, and forest classrooms. Facilitators will share activities from Shelburne Farms’ publications Project Seasons and Cultivating Joy and Wonder and will harvest your ideas for engaging school groups and farm visitors. We’ll discuss program development, tips for creating a safe, inclusive learning environment, and there will ample time for getting to know one another and our respective sites.

Co-presented with the Farm-Based Education Network, a project of Shelburne Farms.
