Reminder: Engaging Families in Farm to ECE starts in five minutes!

Join us now to learn about the benefits and strategies for engaging families in Farm to ECE!

Wednesday June 14, 1:00 pm

The 12th and final webinar in the MI Farm to ECE Webinar Series is today from 1:00 - 1:20 pm. Throughout the last nine months, we've dove deep into different aspects of Farm to ECE, including strategies for local food purchasing, adapting menus to seasonality, planning curriculum and educational opportunities with children, and others. On Wednesday we will round out the series with a webinar featuring Angela Lugo–Thomas of Keep Growing Detroit (KGD). Family engagement can help support program sustainability and shift healthy eating habits at home while you're making shifts in early childhood programs. Angela will share the work of Keep Growing Detroit and they're strategies for engaging families in developing on-site gardens with early childhood programs in Detroit. Enjoy your lunch and spend a quick 15 minutes learning about KGD's great works and how you could plan to engage families and parents in your Farm to ECE work!

Hope to see you Wednesday!
