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

 Nearly 400 attendees attended the 6th Farm-Based Education National Gathering in Concord, MA. Friday, November 4th brought attendees into the field on their choice of six trips to over 16 farms. The workshop program commenced at Concord Carlisle High School on Saturday, November 5 and concluded on Sunday, November 6.  View the conference brochure and workshop schedule!

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.
