Farm-Based Education

ABC’s of Farm-Based Education
 At VT Grand View Farm, we encourage families and individuals to make connections between their own lives and agriculture. Through year round farmstays, summer classes, workshops, and camps, we provide opportunities to learn about land stewardship, food systems, sustainability, and the value of working with your hands. 
This past weekend, I joined 27 other farm educators with the same passion. Through the Farm-Based Education conference at Shelburne Farms, we explored the many ways individuals learn on the farm. Every inch of the farm became our classroom as we helped one another with program development, and problem solving. 
Now it is time to take what I learned and start planning our summer programs here on our farm! So stay tuned!
