Farm to Early Care Webinar Series

Join us for our three-part Farm to Early Care webinar series, designed to empower anyone working in an early care and education setting to purchase fresh locally-grown foods, incorporate food- and farming-themed lessons into the classroom, and engage parents and caregivers in Farm to Early Care activities. Farm to Early Care programs are good for kids, good for farmers and good for communities. Learn more below and join us on Tuesdays in June! More information: https://www.iatp.org/events
