on the Land

Talented educators collaboratively nurture the inner life of people of all ages. 


We facilitate opportunities for children, families, and community throughout the year on our farms, in the Seven Sisters Abenaki Garden, and at the lovely Wheeler Homestead. In camps, fieldtrips, and other gatherings, we co-plan the experience in which they would like to engage.

“I didn’t know I liked carrots!”
