Vermont Farm to School Network Webinar Series for Educators: The Nuts & Bolts of Farm to School

Date: Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm
Location: Online, Zoom

Join the Vermont Farm to School Network to learn how to liven up your existing curriculum with a Farm to School approach! Farm to School is a multifaceted lens that can be used to bridge classroom concepts and transferable skills to students’ lives. This introductory session will dig into hands-on examples of programming you can use right away and is connected to your learning goals. Together we’ll explore: cooking with students, using the garden as an outdoor classroom, nutrition education, taste testing, and connecting with local farms. Teachers will leave with new ideas and next steps to apply Farm to School to their toolkit.

The webinar will be led by Green Mountain Farm-to-School Program Manager Maire Folan, Northwest Vermont Healthy Roots Collaborative Farm to School Coordinator Rachel Huff, and Vital Communities Food & Farm Program Manager Beth Roy.

Thanks to funding from the Vermont Agency of Education, we are grateful we can offer this opportunity at no cost.
