This is the first time in our Network's history where our collective work has halted so abruptly, and a public health crisis has called on us to be more than farm-based educators. While coronavirus is reminding people of the relevance and importance of local farms, it may also be inviting you to change. Luckily, as courageous humans in relationship with each other, we are capable of swift, graceful change.
Change across our Network looks like an educational farm setting up an emergency food distribution site and serving 100 families. It looks like school meals being delivered to children's houses, and a farm to school coordinator joining a middle school English class to help with the online platform. There is such beauty in how individuals can adapt.
Below is a list of resources farm-based educators have found helpful as we navigate these challenging times. Please consider sharing your own safety and communications tools in our shared Google folder!
