Campus Farmer Summit: What’s Growing on Your Campus?
The Farm at Stonehill seeks to “grow community around fresh produce” and spark those who visit the farm to think about how their food choices have local and global, social and environmental impacts. We are pleased to be partnering with Farm to Institution New England and the Vela Foundation to host this inaugural gathering of the campus farmer community in New England. This one-day summit will be participatory in nature and may result in the establishment of a more official “Campus Farmer Network” if this is deemed a priority by attendees. We are part of a community of colleges with gardens or farms on or near their campuses, and we are organizing this summit to offer campus farmers and their friends an opportunity to gather to learn “What’s Growing On Your Campus?”
Following inspiring opening remarks by Molly Anderson and a campus farmer panel, workshops and breakout sessions will offer attendees the opportunity to learn from fellow campus farmers, local farmers, and non-profits about a range of issues chosen by participants.
Please forward widely and send any questions or ideas to: firstname.lastname@example.org
