Our Network is comprised of bright, thoughtful individuals, and we know we can reorient ourselves and our programming better through learning together. Join our 2nd community check-in via Zoom call on 3/27. Hear from farms about their experiences, ask questions, and share resources you've found to be helpful at this uncertain time. 

Join our COVID-19 Facebook Group Think Tank

A place for sharing and asking questions. Discover conversation threads on the following topics, and add your own!
  • What is an adaptation you have made at your farm/site related to coronavirus?
  • What is an innovation you've observed in agriculture, education, farm-based education, cultural institutions that you find inspiring?
  • What resources have you found to be more useful as you think about being a farm-based educator / farmer?
  • How are you communicating with customers/visitors/program participants?
  • Camp directors: have you made the call to cancel camp or are you still hopeful camp will run?
  • How are you handling programming refunds? 

The FBEN is a free member network established to strengthen 
and support the work of educators, farmers, and community leaders  who provide access and experiences on working farms.   Shelburne Farms is the coordinating organization for the FBEN.
