Throughout 2021, we're hosting a new virtual professional development series designed for Vermont K-12 teachers. Our goal is to support teachers in implementing food systems, nutrition education, and hands-on learning opportunities into their curriculum. Topics include food justice, trauma informed practices, student engagement, school gardening, and cooking. Find future workshops in the series on our calendar.

Food Justice, Part 1 & Part 2
Explore the concepts of food justice and emergent issues within a community-based food system, as well as opportunities to affect change locally. A hands-on, virtual experience will illustrate what it takes to create a socially just school food system with the opportunity to collaborate with peers about integrating food justice into your teaching. These webinare were led by Shelburne Farms Professional Learning Facilitator Aimee Arandia Østensen and Shelburne Farms School Programs Coordinator Courtney Mulcahy.
Webinars to come:
- Mar. 10: Trauma Informed Practices & Farm to School
- Mar. 31: Student Engagement & Youth Voice
- Apr. 28: The Nuts & Bolts of Farm to School
- May 12: School Food 101
Thanks to funding from the Vermont Agency of Education, these opportunity were available at no cost to participants.
