Summer is coming to a close and here at Greenfox we are gearing up for the new school year. Read on to find out more about what the Greenfox Team has been up to this summer and what we have in store for the fall!
As we head into our second year of programming, there are exciting things in store for Greenfox Schools! Building upon our success last year, we have expanded our programming with Cambridge Community Schools to include the Morse School. We will continue offering programs at King Open, Haggerty, Martin Luther King Jr./Amigos, and Tobin Schools. We are also excited to bring on two new interns: Kiersten Abate and Sarah Stickney. Kiersten will be our Program Support intern and be responsible for crucial aspects of grant writing and recruitment. Sarah will be our new Teaching Intern and will be assisting Will, the Program Director, in teaching classes this fall.
This past August 18th – the 20th, the annual Boston Greenfest took place at Boston City Hall. It is an all-ages event that focuses on every aspect of environmental sustainability from improving home insulation to showcasing latest eco-friendly technologies to incorporating sustainability into everyday habits. A host of local organizations and civic groups participated, including non-profits, towns, and small businesses. Greenfox Schools was no exception and we were present to hand out flyers and publicize for our teaching positions this fall, as well as our organization’s mission and impact in the community.

Kristen Visits Kroka
This August, founder Kristen von Hoffmann spent a week volunteering at a farm and wilderness camp called Kroka Expeditions, located in Marlow, New Hampshire. Kroka runs programming throughout the year, and is a place that is committed to awakening in young people a connection to nature and the spirit within, and a capacity for conscious living and compassionate service.
While at Kroka, Kristen worked with a group of ten and eleven-year-old students as an assistant counselor, living in the forest with the children and learning traditional and indigenous skills from the group leaders. Together they hiked mountains, cooked all of their food over fires, slept on hemlock boughs in a traditional native dwelling, carved wood, sang, paddled boats, swam, and played.
Kroka offers wilderness adventure, community living, and farming and was founded by Misha Golfman and Lynne Boudreau in 1996. To learn more about Kroka, please click here.
