Farm Based Montessori Schools

Apparently there is already a farm based Montessori school in Ohio. Over the holidays I had the pleasure of meeting Nicole DeBurton who was up from Tennessee visiting relatives (and who was floored to find (and buy multiple pounds) of fresh greens in Michigan in the winter). Anyway, Nicole is featured in this article discussing the plans for the second farm based Montessori school in the east, for which she is heading the creation of in Louisville, Tennessee. Best of luck to them. I, and many of you reading this I imagine, think it is a fabulous idea. I look forward to hearing more as the roots of this school take hold - and things like the greenhouse, orchards, outdoor classroom and vegetable gardens in the space below begin to grow.
