Shelburne Farms offers a variety of professional development opportunities for both formal and non-formal educators. Each program is designed to give educators the confidence, motivation and skills they need to integrate science, agricultural, sustainability and natural resource topics into their curricula. Their work includes the Shelburne Farms’ Sustainable Schools Project (http://www.sustainableschoolsproject.org/about), a dynamic new model for school improvement and civic engagement. The program is designed to help schools use sustainability as an integrating context for curriculum, community partnerships, and campus practices. Emphasis is more on K-12 but is still useful.
