      Cultivating Farm to Early Childhood: May Workshop

      Hey early childhood educators! Come explore Farm to Early Childhood (FTEC) programming with us!   Cultivating Farm to Early Childhood (FTEC) is an opportunity for you — Family Child Care, Head Start, Center-Based, Public Pre-K, and Home Visiting educators — to explore and expand your personal and professional experience related to food and nutrition programming while building and strengthening community connections.  You’ll immerse yourself in hands-on, child-centered learning experiences like making humus, taste testing, and wool felting! We’ll align activities with practical discussions for community networking with local farmers and food system experts to build your FTEC knowledge and practices. Learn how FTEC concepts help meet multiple standards across licensing, CACFP, VELS, and STARS by promoting children’s learning, social emotional well-being, healthy eating habits, family engagement, and community building.   Register by Monday May 13.  Non-Refundable $10 fee includes snacks, lunch and materials. This training workshop counts for both BFIS and CACFP training hours. This FTEC opportunity was designed for the Rozo McLaughlin Farm to School Program and is generously supported by Vermont FEED and the Vermont Agency of Agriculture Food and Markets.
