    Us Donate Now Fundraisers Friends of Fernbrook Wishlist Urban Youth Scholarships Donate A Car Calendar Blog Previous Next Letter From Farmer Q Posted on November 20 2014 by Mr Brian Dear Friends For the past few months we have been working on a strategic plan What do we want Fernbrook s education programs to look like three to five years from now and how do we get there As part of the process we have visited other environmental education centers in New England and the mid atlantic states I can say with a certain amount of pride that we compare very well with many of these centers which have been in business for twenty five or thirty years We may not have their endowment dollars but we offer diverse quality programs to many children and families It also turns out that we have some unique programming in particular of all the centers we visited none of these offered the breadth or complexity of our homeschool programs Looking to the future we will need to expand our physical plant more classroom space and indoor recreation space for those rainy and frigid days The animal barn is a big part of that and we hope to be adding to that space in the near future Planning and improving all takes money That s something we ll be working on But for now I can say we are all very proud of what we do We can hold our heads up against the best that are out there and we are pleased that you are a part of Fernbrook May you and your family have a happy and blessed holiday season and we look forward to serving you better in the New Year Sincerely Farmer Q This entry was posted in About the
