Thursday, Nov. 12 and Friday, Nov. 13—This year’s Farm to Plate gathering may be virtual, but it’s no less important! This year marks a period of transition with the closing of the first 10 years of Farm to Plate and the beginning of the next 10 years. Together as a network attendees will get a first glimpse at the next 10-year strategic plan — it’s vision, goals, and objectives — and in breakout sessions dive into priority issues that have emerged through stakeholder engagement and public input to determine the ways in which we’ll collaboratively work together to bring our shared vision to fruition. You’ll also hear stories of adaptation and transition in the food system during Covid, and reflect on what can be learned and applied from them to the next decade of food system development.
The gathering will be held Thursday, Nov. 12 from 12:30 p.m.-5 p.m. and Friday, Nov. 13 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m., and will be hosted online. Registration is open here: bit.ly/36ldO0h.
Links to sessions will be sent prior to the gathering via email. There is a flat fee of $30 to register for the gathering regardless of number of sessions/days attended. They’re offering to cover the registration fee for farmers, food workers, or food business owners who need assistance with registration costs. If you are applying for a scholarship, please do not register until you hear from our Farm to Plate staff.
