Now in their second school year at Smokey House Center, The Tutorial Center (TTC) carries on a rich tradition of land-based learning in Danby. Students in TTC’s YouthWork & Learn program attend full school days at Smokey House, receiving credit from their sending schools for hands-on, project-based learning in the forest and field. Among their many academic pursuits, they grow, sell, and cook with food from their own garden and have completed a range of carpentry projects, building compost bins and garden cold frames, and renovating the woodshop wall (pictured). This fall, TTC expanded the long-running Field Studies program to include students from nearby Tinmouth and Middletown Springs elementary schools for a yearlong study of wetlands.
