HUMANE EDUCATION

EDUCATION AT UNITY FARM SANCTUARY

In addition to providing a safe and lifelong home for farm animals, an important part of Unity Farm Sanctuary's mission is promoting a culture of kindness and connection through Humane Education. We are happy to offer a diverse array of educational programs for people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities, which you can read about in the following pages. Keep checking back, as we have many new opportunities in the works set to launch in the coming months!

Our on-site tours are currently on hold due to the Covid19 pandemic, but you can still visit the sanctuary virtually! Tours can be tailored to the needs of your school group, organization, or company.
