Beyond The Classroom
I grew up in a small rural town in Vermont. There are four community gardens for a town with a population of three thousand. My mother is director of a non-profit sustainability organization that focuses on community awareness and support for local farmers. Growing up, we recycled everything, and whatever we didn’t recycle, we composted. When bats moved into our chimney one summer, my mother would go out on the porch every night and wait for them to come out so she could say goodnight to them.

As a consultant (www.HornEdConsulting.org), Peter assists a range of schools and other learning organizations in this process of inquiry, invention and change.
