Apply by July 10: Farm to School Leadership Academy

Good morning, everyone.


I wanted to pass along some information about a national Farm to School learning opportunity – the Farm to School Leadership Academy.


This will be a year-long community of learning to support you in transforming school food systems. The Farm to School Leadership Academy brings together leaders and aspiring leaders who are dedicated to food systems education and committed to healing these systems in schools and early childhood settings. Participants will explore principles of transformational leadership, systems change, and community support to enhance and strengthen their ongoing farm to school efforts.

Who should apply? The program is best suited for educators, coordinators, and leaders working in farm to school and food education in preK-12 settings. Priority will be given to those working in public school systems.
