The Vermont Farm to School Network collaborates on a range of projects that help to strategically expand Farm to School work in Vermont. At the heart of our collaboration was a strategic mapping process, completed in 2014, that helped us identify leverage points and opportunities to collectively advance or work. Here are the current collaborative projects that we're taking on:
