The educational mission of New Brook Farm (NBF) is to share information and raise awareness of the historical, social, archaeological, and environmental significance of the Brook Farm site with adults and students in Greater Boston and neighboring areas. In addition, through farm and classroom experiences, NBF hopes to promote healthy and “green” practices in the growing, distribution, and preparation of food crops.
This mission will be achieved on and off-site through tours, workshops, lectures, and hands-on activities. Much of this programming will be in partnership with other community entities such as the West Roxbury Historical Society.
Educational activities will highlight the historic nature and “inspiring thought” of Brook Farm. Hands-on topics will range from farming and gardening to food preparation and related arts and crafts.
