Burr and Burton has an exciting new partnership with Hildene, offering hands-on, real life educational experiences for BBA students. Hildene has recently converted its River Road property to working farmland, inviting BBA to create a garden space and have access to its brand new, state-of-the-art greenhouse. This new collaboration is the backbone of BBA’s Farm-to-School initiative and adds a cutting edge to our curriculum. The greenhouse and garden sit on over 400 acres of meadow, woods and wetland. Beyond the farm and greenhouse, this new partnership also offers students access to apple orchards, beehives, a bobolink preserve, rotational grazing of livestock, meadow ecology, wetland ecology, forest management and much more.
