The Northeast Farm to School Institute is a unique year-long professional learning opportunity for twelve school teams selected from across New England and New York.
Selected teams will spend the retreat developing a Farm to School action plan, networking with other schools from across the Northeast, and taking part in teacher and nutrition staff specific professional development. Additionally, teams are paired with an experienced coach from their state's Farm to School community for year-long support. The year-long Institute kicks off with a Summer Retreat held at Shelburne Farms in Shelburne, VT from June 26-28, 2018. Read what other New York schools had to say about their experience last year!
Individual schools and school districts may apply after developing team committed to implementing Farm to School within their school community.
Deadline to apply for the 2018-2019 institute is March 7, 2018.
