Shelburne Farms is a nonprofit organization educating for a sustainable future. That means learning that links knowledge, inquiry, and action to help students build a healthy future for their communities and the planet. Our home campus is a 1,400-acre working farm, forest, and National Historic Landmark.
We care about the sustainability and quality of life on earth. We care about young people having hope for the future. We believe that sustainability is grounded in individual awareness and action in our own communities.
- We offer learning experiences that inspire young people to make informed decisions to build a sustainable society in the 21st century.
- We steward and share our working landscape and historic property in ways that are environmentally, economically, and culturally sustainable, using it as a campus for learning.
- We collaborate with educators, schools, and other partners to learn from each other so that we can transform education and extend our collective impact around the world.
