EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES

The Hallockville Education Committee explores and develops new ideas for education of both adults and children with staff participation and in accordance with the Mission of Hallockville Museum Farm. The Committee also helps locate funding sources and assists with finding knowledgeable teachers, schools and libraries to increase awareness of the ‘Living Heritage’ at Hallockville. The Committee may also assist in providing training for educators. The Committee will advise the staff and volunteers in any way possible to expand and carry out existing educational programs.
