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, discussion and activity-based learning and explore Shelburne Farms’ dairy, farmyard, garden, and forest classrooms. Experience activities from Shelburne Farms’ publications Project Seasons and Cultivating Joy and Wonder as we discuss ways to engage school groups and farm visitors. In addition to activity sharing and program development, we’ll discuss tips for creating a safe learning environment and will have ample time for getting to know one another and our respective farm-based education sites.  We typically host our ABC’s of Farm-Based Education workshop twice a year; in the Spring & Fall.   Read more about ABCs on our blog. 

Instructors:  Susie Marchand, Vera Simon-Nobes, and other Shelburne Farms educators. 

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