The 2024 Annual Network Gathering Breakout Session Request for Proposal is Open!


Vermont Farm to Plate is excited to welcome you to be a part of its 2024 Annual Gathering on November 20th and 21st at Killington Resort. We invite Farm to Plate network members and non-members involved with Vermont’s food system to propose breakout sessions that align with this year’s theme, “Transformative Action”. Building on the momentum and insights from our 2023 Gathering, there is a desire among Network members to deepen our commitment to transformative change by moving from personal understanding to collaborative action, from overlapping statewide plans and initiatives to aligned implementation.  


To be effective change agents together, we must draw on applied knowledge and skills that lead to demonstrable transformative action. We are seeking 14 breakout session proposals that provide participants with concrete tips, takeaways, tools, and collaborative problem solving to address key food system issues. Submissions should focus on innovative programs, business models, supply chain partnerships and collaborations, financing and funding, coalitions, community and grassroots approaches, and applied cross-cutting skills that relate to the four high-level goal areas of the Strategic Plan: economic development, environmental sustainability, food access and security, and racial equity.

Click here to read the full application and apply by Friday, August 23.
