How does farm to school work? Want to step up your game? Register today
Registration is underway for the 2019 Iowa Farm to School Conference, which will be held June 21-22 at Central College in Pella.
Farm to school activities in Iowa are helping put local food on school meal trays, supporting Iowa farmers, and connecting students to local food systems through school gardens and nutrition education activities.
The conference will enable participants to learn more about how farm to school works and how schools can take their activities to the next level.
Workshop tracks, keynotes, field trips and intensive courses will be offered over two days to help you build new skills in local procurement strategy, farm to school curriculum, and community partnerships and collaborations. New this year? Two additional tracks will be focused on topics for high school student leaders and early childhood practitioners. Learn more and register today.
The Iowa Farm to School Conference is held in partnership with the Iowa Department of Education, Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Iowa Department of Public Health, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, and Iowa Association for the Education of Young Children.
