Teaching People Kindness and Compassion to Animals, Each Other and our Planet.
Martin Buonora
Governance and National Committee

Martin Buonora is the co-owner/operator of the Buonora Child Development Centers; a group of schools offering licensed Preschool, Kindergarten and Summer Camp for children eighteen months to twelve years, since 1988, as well as Early Intervention programs for children with special needs, from birth to five years, plus an extensive Parent Resource Center.

The Buonora Centers programs focus on the development of the whole child, featuring a hands-on, child-centered approach to learning. That is why it is no surprise that the Buonora Centers have been bringing their students to The Gentle Barn since The Gentle Barn’s inception.

In addition, Martin is a published author, has a strong background in construction project management and is a licensed Spiritual Practitioner and Reiki master.

"I have been coming to The Gentle Barn for fourteen years and have always felt the amazing connection that is made between animals and people. The Gentle Barn Foundation plays a vital roll in our community and is essential to become a bigger part of our global community. I am excited to be on the National Committee, to help with this most important expansion."
