The Freelance Condition & Lifelong Learning in Communities is a survey for freelance informal educators. This research focuses specifically on the contributions of freelance informal educators who address plants, nature, and related topics in their work. I focus on freelance informal educators in particular because they are not bound to one location and have the opportunity to create change in many different settings.

Who are freelance informal educators?

What do they do?

Where do they work?

How do they lead?

What do they need to be better leaders?

These are some of the questions I seek to answer. 


For this study, a “freelance informal educator” is defined as someone who does not receive income as an employee (W-2 income) for the programs, products, or learning experiences they create. Freelance educators, like other freelancers, work one project, one event, or one gig at a time. If this describes you, please consider sharing your story and completing the survey. All responses remain anonymous.

Responses collected through this survey will be used to understand how freelance educators work and how they contribute to lifelong learning.
