Racial Equity in Farm to School 2021 training series (virtual workshops)

Please join us for a virtual summer series on Racial Equity in Farm to School. Hosted by The Farm to School Coalition of NC, this free, 5 session, 2 hour workshops series will be led by Ronda Bullock and her team from we are (www.weare-nc.org). Join us! Questions? contact tes_thraves@ncsu.edu

Because you can join any or all, you’ll need to register separately for each training (logistics—sorry!), and sessions will be held from 3:00-5:00pm on the last Tuesday of every month June-October (dates listed below). Ideally, join with others from your own school or community. These will follow the outline of last year’s series but we’ve added an optional, informal, hour-long discussion space around implementation the week after each of the first four trainings, where we can share what actually doing this work looks like in our day to day efforts.
