What We Do

Shelburne Farms' Sustainable Schools Project is a dynamic whole-systems model for school transformation and youth leadership.

We support educators, administrators, students and communities to use sustainability as an integrating context for curriculum, community partnerships, collaboration and campus ecology and practices. 

Professional Learning: We work with individual teachers, teams of teachers, or entire schools and districts.  SSP and Shelburne Farms offer a series of institutes, workshops, year-long programs as well as tailor made offerings for your school or organization.  Please visit the Shelburne Farms website for more information on some of our professional development programs.

Resources:  We share our work freely, including units of study, lesson plans, teaching materials and evaluation tools many of which can be found on this website.  Some of our print materials are for sale such as the Healthy Neighborhoods/Healthy Kids Guide.

Network:  We are part of local, national, and international networks and can help you tap into resources in your own community or across the globe.  We are excited to be collaborators in the Greater Burlington RCE which is part of the UN Regional Centres of Expertise in Education for Sustainable Development.
