Network Gathering

Farm to Plate logo



November 18 & 19, 2021 | Virtual

During this important Network Gathering we kicked off implementation of the Vermont Agriculture and Food System Strategic Plan 2021-2030! Over two days, 270+ attendees explored inspiring efforts across the state that are bringing the 2021-2030 Strategic Plan to life, received practical trainings and topic deep-dives to help organizations, farms, and food businesses, witnessed the unveiling of the next iteration of the Farm to Plate Network, and learned how we can work collectively to implement strategic priorities over the next decade.

Farm to Plate Network Survey 

The Farm to Plate Network has created a new network structure built around the Vermont Agriculture and Food System Strategic Plan 2021-2030. In this new structure, members will convene through Network Wide Exchanges, Priority Strategy Teams, Topic Exchanges, and Communities of Practice. If you'd like to be involved in this exciting Vermont agriculture and food system work, please take a few minutes to fill out this important survey so you can select the areas of the food system where you'd like to be involved. Your participation will be extremely helpful as Farm to Plate convenes new groups and transitions from their current website to a new site in early 2022.
