Discover exciting, hands-on ways to develop agricultural education programs for schoolgroups with kid-tested, easy-to-use activities from PROJECT SEASONS, a collection of teaching ideas developed by teachers and agriculture educators over the past 20 years. If you are just starting to explore the possibilities of opening your farm for education, or looking for new ideas for your program, this is the workshop for you. Shelburne Farms’ farmyard, dairy, forest, gardens and Education Center will be our campus. Topics include marketing your farm program to schools and the community, creating a safe farm environment for the public, and meeting teachers’ needs.
