Applications for the 2017-18 Northeast Farm to School Institute are now being accepted! The Institute is a unique year-long professional learning opportunity for twelve school teams from New England and New York. The year-long Institute kicks off with a Summer Retreat held at Shelburne Farms in Shelburne, VT from June 27-29, 2017.
VT FEED welcomes Farm to School champions — long-time advocates and those looking to begin integrating these programs into their school community — to form a team and apply. Teams should include a diverse mix of classroom teachers, parents, school administrators, school nurses, school nutrition staff, school board members and other community members. Teams are paired with an experienced coach from their state’s Farm to School Network for year-long support creating, implementing, and revising their action plan.
Applications due March 9, 2017. Find out more about the Institute and apply at http://vtfeed.org/farm-school-institute.
