Event description

Description

We’ve taken some of our favorite school program topics and turned them into seasonal educator workshops! Join us on the Farm throughout the year for a series of programs designed to deepen your knowledge of a topic and enrich your curriculum. In fall, winter, and spring we’ll spend time outside connecting with the land, interacting with experts, and developing tools and techniques to take back to your students. Workshops can be taken individually or as a series.

Participants may sign up for 1, 2 or all 3 workshops. A $15 discount is available for those who register for all 3!

Harvest Time: Cultivate lessons through a morning in the garden. We’ll spend time doing hands-on activities, dig into cycles and systems, and explore how food is linked to our community, economics, and natural environment. Join Shelburne Farms Educators and special guests to harvest new ideas and connections for your classroom. *You DO NOT need to have a garden or access to a garden to participate!

Animals in Winter: What strategies do Vermont animals use to survive winter? We will examine their methods and hone our tracking skills as we hike through fields and forests searching for signs of active animals in winter. Come network with other educators, experience our favorite activities and resources, and share your own.

Milk & More: Explore a Vermont tradition and build awareness of the importance that dairy plays in the farming landscape. You’ll experience a variety of fun, hands-on activities relating to cows and visit our own Brown Swiss herd. We’ll delve into activities that explore the roles that farmers and dairy products play in our local food system and in keeping our communities healthy and thriving.
