Collaborating with Nature to Write and Tell Stories

Duke Farms and the Monarch Teacher Network are sponsoring a weekend retreat, Oct. 26-28, for educators of all grades. 

Led by experienced naturalists and storytellers from the Monarch Teacher Network, this “Stories from the Land” weekend retreat explores the teaching and healing power of nature when combined with story writing and storytelling.

As creative teams, participants learn how to develop and share their own stories, inspired by materials and stories drawn from nature. Writing, communication and performance skills are integrated in a unique approach that can inspire creativity and build community among people of all ages and backgrounds.

The cost is $195 and includes six meals, lodging and all materials. Go to to register. For additional information, contact Samantha Wolfe at 908-722-3700 or You may also visit
