Northeast Farm to School Institute Kickoff Summer Retreat
The Northeast Farm to School Institute is a unique year-long professional learning opportunity being offered to twelve school teams from New England and New York. The Institute is designed for schools with farm to school programming that are looking to boost their program’s impact in the cafeteria, classroom, and community. Institute school teams spend three days at the Kickoff Summer Retreat at Shelburne Farms in Shelburne, Vermont, where they will participate in professionally-led workshops, network with their peers, and create a farm to school action plan. Each team will also have an experienced farm to school coach to support them in carrying out their action plan through the school year.
