Vermont FEED’s Farm to School Institute is a unique year-long professional learning opportunity for selected school, district, or early childhood teams from New England and New York.

Since 2010, the Farm to School Institute has been bringing teams together to build relationships, skills, and a collaborative action plan for their school. With the support of a coach, teams spend the school year putting their plans into action and strengthening their capacity to impact classrooms, cafeterias and communities, with change that lasts.

This is a year-long program kicking off with an in-person summer retreat at Shelburne Farms, June 27-29, 2023 . Teams will implement their action plans during the following school year with the support of a coach.

Program expenses during the three-day summer retreat are generously supported by the US Department of Agriculture. Any travel and incidental expenses are the responsibility of participants.
