NOW PRESENTING...23X NEW ENGLAND FOOD IMMERSION!
This summer, we’re piloting a New England Food Immersion Program–there’s no better place to study vibrant agricultural networks than right where we’re at, and there’s no better way for to learn than to get your boots on the ground and experience it!
We’ll meet with many different stakeholders from across the food system to gain a broad understanding of how our food system works and the factors that influence how food is produced, including farmers and farmworkers, policymakers, activists and advocates, holders of local knowledge, and scholars.
