Environmental & Community Programs

Building greater awareness of the natural world and understanding the role that humans play as caretakers of the earth has a powerful healing impact. The Uplands Center aspires to elevate environmental consciousness through experiential, place-based education and programming.

Connecting with Our Environment


By offering opportunities for visitors and community members to engage in meaningful interactions with the farm and woodlands at the Uplands, we hope to rejuvenate guests and inspire them to view the world as a network of interdependent, transformative relationships.

Workshops and programs can include:

  • Interpretive Nature Walks: including birding, wild edibles, forest health, native plants
  • Nature Immersion / Meditation in Nature
  • Organic Gardening: raised-bed construction, planting, tending, harvesting, cooking
  • Foraging: finding food naturally
  • Regenerative Agriculture: permaculture, rotational grazing
  • Invasive vegetative species removal and re-establishment of native plants
  • Developing nesting and feeding areas for native pollinators
  • Artful Inspirations from Nature

Community-Centered Programs

The Uplands is committed to Delaware County, the town of Walton and the larger community in which it is located. We welcome opportunities to collaborate with regional service organizations and offer a convenient venue for other community-building and engagement activities.

To date, the Uplands is proud to have partnered with local organizations as varied as community art initiatives, local health care services, and rehabilitation agencies. In addition, the Uplands has launched wellness and yoga classes as a community service.
