  • VT: Food for thought at an elementary school
    Summary: Working hard to engage the community, teachers, and parents has had a positive pay-off for Lawrence Barnes students. Integrating the Shelburne Farm's (VT) Sustainable Schools Project into the school curriculum has helped students connect classroom lessons to real life and made tangable how students can wield their own power to affect change. As an added bonus the project also helps English language learners bridge linguistic and cultural divides.
