For the past few years, Abundance Farm has been integrating outdoor education into its existing curriculum under the auspices of a grant from the Covenant Foundation.  These professional development workshops are our opportunity to share what we have learned with the broader community, and to help teachers who are interested in these subjects learn from each other.  The material is geared to both Judaics and general studies teachers. 

Most of the Farm's educational units offer a project-based approach; these workshops are especially appropriate for those interested in project based learning, design thinking, or integrated curricula.  Participants can expect that these workshops will range in focus from STEM to history and literature to tefilah, holidays, and Hebrew.
