Welcome, PreK–12 and non-formal educators! The Shelburne Farms Institute for Sustainable Schools offers transformative programs and resources for you and your students to help inspire an emerging generation of changemakers.
Education for sustainability links knowledge, inquiry, and action while cultivating a sense of joy and wonder for the world around us. Our offerings for you–and for your students–focus on equity-centered food systems and climate change education, community and place-based learning, and youth engagement and action to help learners build healthier communities and a healthier planet, now and in the future.
In Your Words
My summer program experience at Shelburne Farms has transformed my teaching practice here in Nigeria. The effect is spreading sustainability awareness and skills to our students, educators, and communities. And that is just a wonderful thing!
