What is the Farm to School Network?
The Vermont Farm to School Network provides statewide leadership, coordination, and advocacy to advance new and existing Farm to School efforts in Vermont classrooms, cafeterias and communities. The Vermont Farm to School Network is open to all Farm to School advocates, practitioners, and programs across the state.
Check out the NEW Vermont Farm to School Network website at vermontfarmtoschool.org/. See who else has Farm to School programs across the state and add your school or farm to the Vermont Farm to School map.
