Burlington Sustainability Trip
Join us for the first ever March MAlt break trip to the Sustainability Academy elementary school in the Old North End of Burlington! The academy is an innovative magnet school that uses sustainability as a lens for place-based education and service learning, focusing their curriculum on economics, the environment, and social justice. It  is also the most diverse elementary school in Vermont, with children from over ten countries who speak more than twelve languages. Trip participants will partner with the school and students to design and construct a sustainable playground using recycled materials, as well as spending time/working at the beautiful Shelburne Farms, the school’s partner in sustainability education.
