Webinar: Promising Partnerships – Extension and Farm to Early Care and Education

With the goal of bringing practical information to improve the lives of agricultural producers, consumers, families, and children, extension is a natural fit for partnership in farm to school and farm to early care and education (ECE) initiatives. Across the U.S., extension provides a vital link to resources and information and builds connections between producers and communities, expanding opportunities for local procurement, gardening, and food and agriculture education in schools and ECE settings. The National Institute for Food and Agriculture, in partnership with the National Farm to School Network, will be offering a webinar to share more about extension and farm to ECE partnerships and projects. Register here and join the webinar on March 14, at 11 AM PST.

For more information, contact Lacy Stephens (lacy@farmtoschool.org), NFSN Farm to Early Care and Education Associate.
