The Farm to Plate Annual Gathering is the one time each year when the entire Farm to Plate Network comes together to reflect on what has been accomplished and plan for the challenges that lie ahead implementing Vermont’s food system plan. The theme for this year’s Gathering will be Resiliency in a Changing Food System Landscape. We’ll examine as a Network how Vermont’s food system can create a greater capacity to learn and adapt, and maintain core purpose and integrity in the face of dramatically changing circumstances (economic, environmental, political etc).
Our keynote speaker is Laura Lengnick, the author of Resilient Agriculture: Cultivating Food Systems for a Changing Climate. Prior to her current work as an author and the principal consultant at Cultivating Resilience she worked as a USDA soil scientist and researcher, a Senate staffer for Tom Daschle, a contributor to the Third National Climate Assessment, and was the Director of the Sustainable Agriculture Program at Warren Wilson College for over 10 years.
And you won’t want to miss out on hearing the results of our 2017 Local Food Count totals! How close are we to 10% local food consumption by Vermonters? We will also be sharing the results of interviews with food system stakeholders regarding the future of Vermont Farm to Plate past 2020.
