2017 October Farm to School Gatherings

Are you part of the local Farm to School movement or looking to learn more? Meet your local Farm to School Network!

Gather in your region of Vermont to build local connections with peers and Farm to School practitioners, access resources, and find support for your efforts. Celebrate successes and find energy and solutions to strengthen the work in your area.

 

All gatherings are 4:00-7:00 PM, free, and refreshments are provided. All are welcome, including people currently leading and coordinating FTS activities, folks interested in or supportive of FTS, school volunteers, groundskeepers, food service/cafeteria staff, classroom teachers and paras, farmers, community members, businesses who have sponsored FTS, and parents.
