MKFF and Cultivating Joy and Wonder

Shelburne Farms

Shelburne, Vermont

Mission: Shelburne Farms is a nonprofit education organization whose mission is to cultivate a conservation ethic for a sustainable future.  Our campus is a 1,400-acre working farm and National Historic Landmark on the shores of Lake Champlain in Shelburne, Vermont.


Moving kids Forward Foundation has provided funds to Shelburne Farms to print the early childhood resource guide, Cultivating Joy and Wonder. Preschool is the ideal time to introduce children to big ideas of sustainability and encourage nature-based exploration of the agricultural and natural world.  Because of the grant, Shelburne Farms will distribute these valuable tools free or at deeply discounted rates to a wide audience of preschool educators.
