Workshops & Events

Jeffers primary purpose is to help youngsters learn sound principles of Environmental Stewardship and to love and understand their natural world. Jeffers workshops exist for that sole purpose. One of Jeffers guiding principles has always been to help Teachers do their job more effectively without adding cost or additional work. When a Teacher participates in one of our workshops she/he will gain valuable insights into how to best make use of the product or program Jeffers generously offers. Workshop sessions are tailored to the specific needs and wishes of the individual schools and workshop venues.

All workshop participants come away with great ideas and many useful tools. If your school/organization is interested in hosting a Jeffers workshop, please contact us at

Thank you for your wonderful presentation on team teaching with Mother Nature. There has been a lot of conversation centered around the information you presented and there have already been classes out in the courtyard.
