Hear From Our Teachers

“The curriculum is extremely practical. I came here with a lot of questions from our community and school, and now after coming to Stone Barns Center, I have solutions to those issues to bring back with me.”

Teresa Fernan

Culinary Arts Teacher, Houston

“Start small. Put the seeds in the ground. Whether they’re seeds of thought or physical seeds. Stone Barns has created such a wonderful curriculum and we’ll be doing a deep dive into food and culture, and food and power, and the food system. “

Jennifer Wright

English Teacher, Chicago

“It’s the perfect opportunity to see how a farm can be sustainable. And we get the materials to bring back to our students to help them learn about how you can grow your own food, eat healthy, and go up against corporate, monocrop food that’s not good for you.”

Brian Bleser

Science Teacher, Los Angeles
