Dipping Our Toes into Virtual Farm-Based Ed

Wednesday, April 1, 2:30 - 3:30 EST

Hear from four farm-based educators who are exploring promising practices for virtual farm-based learning. What can and cannot be translated through a digital platform? How are your audiences accessing your content? How do you know if what you’re doing is working? 



Community Check-In 

Friday, March 27, 3 - 4 EST


Our Network is comprised of bright, thoughtful individuals, and we know we can reorient ourselves and our programming better through learning together. Join our 2nd community check-in via Zoom call on 3/27. Hear from farms about their experiences, ask questions, and share resources you've found to be helpful at this uncertain time.   Register!
