Campus Farmer Summit

Saturday, February 10, 2018 - 8:30am to 3:00pm
Location: 
Easton, MA

What’s Growing on Your Campus?

The Farm at Stonehill and Farm to Institution New England will host a one-day summit at The Martin Institute at Stonehill College to offer campus farmers the change to connect in person about what makes their farms successful. At this summit, students, farmers, and instructors will have the opportunity to meet with individuals working at other campus farms, local for-profit farms, and local, regional and national organizations and agencies that are working to strengthen ties to the foods that we eat. This forum will provide an opportunity for stakeholders working at the intersection of food justice, environmental sustainability, food access, and healthy eating to discuss challenges and opportunities, as well as invite partners from the nonprofit sector to join us in conversation about what colleges and universities can be doing to forge deeper alliances within our communities to grow a stronger regional food system.

Following 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.

Where:           Martin Institute at Stonehill College, 320 Washington St, Easton, MA
