Facing Global Challenges Through Education

We can learn ways to teach math, science, history, literature, movement and more in a holistic fashion and find ways to meet and mitigate the global challenges we now face with joy and understanding, instead of fear. David Maynard, former OVWS Movement teacher and longtime homesteader, will present an educational vision that uses academic studies, physical skills and play to addresses sustainability issues. 

Join us at the East Montpelier Campus for this conversation.
