Join us to hear from regional Farm to School experts and harness inspiration for your school’s Farm to School programming.

About this Event

Since our last communication, our Farm to School team assessed if holding our Farm to School Conference was in the best interest of public health. Our deciding factors included Governor Scott prohibiting large conferences and the closure of local schools. Additionally, we take our collective responsibility seriously in helping "flatten the curve." Therefore, we are postponing the Farm to School Conference until a later date.

We know many of you were excited to hear from our workshop presenters and to connect with others engaged in Farm to School work throughout the region. Our team is working hard to reschedule the conference and we will keep you updated throughout the entire process.

For those who have already registered

  • Your registration will remain valid for our rescheduled conference.
  • If you are unable to attend the new date, you will receive a full refund.
  • If you would like to cancel your registration now, you will receive a full refund. Simply, email farmtoschool@foodconnects.org to let us know you would like a refund.

If you have not yet registered

  • Registration is currently closed until a new date is selected.
  • Once registration re-opens, registration prices will remain at their current rate ($100 for non-members and $75 for members).

We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we all respond to the current situation. Please feel free to reach out to our team if you have any questions about this change.

In the meantime, the Farm to School team will be focused on supporting child nutrition efforts in the schools and our community. This will be a combination of coordination support and grassroots volunteering. If you are looking for ways to help or need assistance meeting the needs of your community, please reach out to our team at farmtoschool@foodconnects.org.

Best,

Food Connects Farm to School team
