Shaker Sustainability: A Relevant Model

Hancock Shaker Village (HSV) demonstrates an historic model of environmental sustainability and responsible community building within the context of principled, communal living. Themes of renewable energy, sustainable agriculture and historic preservation are woven into the interpretation of the site. These themes are catalysts for discussions about the essence of society, and provide interdisciplinary strands that enhance skills in art, music, science and technology, and writing at all grade levels.
