Our Wonder Barn brand is a concept offer inspired by experiential learning and facilitated community.
The inspiration for the Wonder Barn evolved from our own personal and professional experiences. We believe the best way to learn is to go, to see, to do, and to engage with others. The Wonder Barn is our desire to use demonstration places and facilitated conversation to build understanding of the systems that connect us to one another and to our environment.
The "barn" represents any unique space, where small or large groups, known or unknown to one another, can gather or travel together for a variety of purposes - corporate meeting or retreat, city tour, art exhibit, skills workshop, recreation, film screening, concert, community supper, fundraising event or other activity.
Our team has experience planning dozens of sustainability themed community events, group seminars, outdoor leadership courses, and learning journeys across the US and Canada. We are equally equipped to go abroad with you. We will craft with you the scope of the engagement you seek to create, identify the appropriate places and space for the event, and facilitate as needed.
We love showing others how different cities are demonstrating leadership through their sustainability platforms and programs. As part of this tour, you will meet with local leaders and visit initiatives in action.
