Round the Bend Farm
Join us in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts for a week of farming, learning and building community, with a focus on integrated food-energy-water systems. This week-long farm experience is part of the Climate Farm School learning program.
About the Farm
Round the Bend Farm (RTB) is situated along the Farm Coast of southeastern New England, on the ancestral lands of the Wampanoag people. It is a non-profit educational farm devoted to its mission of valuing diversity, modeling nature, and redefining wealth. The farm hosts annual vegetable production, perennial crops and animal husbandry, in partnership with independent “agripreneurs” who own and manage most of the animals on the land. The farm also employs an eclectic range of practices, in order to grow the most health-sustaining soils and nutrient-dense, bioactive food and medicine possible.
Nate Sander, Education Manager at Round the Bend, will be the primary point of contact for course participants. Nate has a background in teaching and education as well as farming, having worked in Seattle Public Schools prior to moving to the East Coast and working at RTB. Participants will meet other members of RTB farming staff and the “agripreneurs” through the course of the week on the farm.

Climate Farm School should be required coursework for every generation.. I've learned that it doesn't matter if you work in the climate or agriculture industry; as humans, we are a part of, not apart from, the agro-ecosystem, and we owe it to ourselves and our planet to understand the complexity of our food systems.
The week spent at Climate Farm School was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had.. This course has given me so much knowledge, insight, perspective and hope.. The course material combined with all the people associated in making it what it is makes it so unique and like nothing else out there.
