Bringing the Farm to School is entering Phase 3 of our program: Regional Facilitator Workshops. Regional Facilitator Workshops are designed to equip state teams with the know-how and resources to plan and present the Bringing the Farm to School training program to producers in their state.
Who Should Attend? The Regional Facilitator Workshop is open to any State agency representatives, Agricultural Extension Educators or Agents, producer support organization staff, and state farm to school representatives interested in being a part of the state “Training Team” that will plan and execute Producer Trainings. Following the training, attendees will solidify these state Training Teams and work together to plan Producer Trainings in their state. Some states may already have Training Teams identified prior to the Regional Facilitator Workshop. Training Teams should include representatives across sectors and with diverse areas of knowledge and experience, including but not limited to child nutrition program procurement, farm planning, and producer training.
Contact Information: For support in building your training team or to find out if attending this Workshop is right for you, contact Tomas Delgado, NFSN Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Tammy Howard, NCAT Agricultural Specialist, at email@example.com.
