About the Gathering
"It was a welcoming space, and I got the sense that all participants felt like they were valuable to the larger group and that they all had something they could take home with them regardless of their interest/profession." - Gathering attendee
The Gathering marked the Farm-Based Education Network's 10th Anniversary and the first time in 5 years that the Farm-Based Education Network has convened a National event.
Tremendous gratitude goes out to all the volunteers, workshop presenters, field trip leaders, and sponsors who gave generously of their time and resources, and to all host sites past, present and future. This broad support and dedication to the community of farm-based education professionals is critical and inspiring. The event was held in partnership with The Trustees, the Massachusetts Farm to School, Concord-Carlisle Community & Adult Education, Shelburne Farms in Vermont, and the Concord Food Collaborative.
