Comparative Approaches to Stewardship of Our Environment

A relationship to land is critical for children if we are to live sustainably and solve problems that threaten the survival of our planet. In this free virtual workshop, we will look at efforts to both maintain and revive a connection with the land. We will travel to Cameroon to explore agricultural education at a farm school.

We will also hear about a local program in Dorchester that seeks to help children re-establish a relationship to the land by providing access to greenspace and gardens.
