Shelburne Farms Post Graduate Education Fellowship

Shelburne Farms is proud to host postgraduate education fellows, who are early in their careers in the fields of farm-based and place-based education. Our education fellows learn from and work alongside our staff in a variety of our education programs. Fellows also live onsite and are immersed in the daily rhythms of the farm and the cycle of the seasons.

A majority of the fellow’s time is spent teaching and learning with our school field trip programs with additional time spent among our early childhood, outreach, family, and public programs; and occasional time spent with our educational farmyard due to the seasonality. Our school programs work primarily with elementary-age youth for place-based, seasonally-themed field trips and local community outreach. Outreach programs occur onsite at schools. Early childhood programs are full and half-day nature and play-based programs for preschool and early elementary-aged children. Our family and public programs happen mainly in the evenings or on the weekends with a variety of programs and special events offered throughout the year. The educational farmyard is open to the general public and also provides school, camp, and youth group visits from May through October where visitors explore their connection to farm animals to understand where our food and fiber originates. Mentorship is provided by education staff members; educational resources are shared; and experiential learning is embraced through goal setting, independent exploration, reflection and writing. Graduate level assignments encourage exploration, reflection, and synthesis of the variety of experiences had by fellows during their tenure with Shelburne Farms. Additional time is spent identifying goals and pursuing a personalized professional learning plan, completing education support projects, and engaging in other areas of the farm. Shelburne Farms is committed to fostering a culturally aware learning community that is open to multiple perspectives. Fellows are provided with feedback on their strengths and areas of improvement to further develop their teaching practice and professional development plan. Fellowships are offered as paid temporary employment with housing.
