Professional Development Season Arrives
Shelburne Farms' work of educating for a sustainable future is in full swing as the summer months arrive and professional development opportunities for teachers kick off on the Farm. Here's a quick look at what is coming up:
Summer Kale & Scallion Frittata
Vermont gardens are greening up - now we have a whole lot of leafy greens to cook up. Chef Jim McCarthy suggests a summer frittata for breakfast, lunch, or an ideal midnight snack.
2nd Annual Northeast Farm to School Institute Wraps Up
Last week, twelve New York and New England teams arrived on Shelburne Farms' working farm campus to talk about all things farm to school: how to start, how to grow a program, and everything in between. Look through some of the moments of the Institute here.
Renewable Energy on the Farm
Maybe you've seen the solar panels on our Farm Barn roof above the Children's Farmyard. Maybe you even know about Green Mountain Power's solar orchard near the Coach Barn. Recently, we've added information panels to both of these structures. Since you may not get to visit often, we thought we'd share a bit of that information with you here.
