Farm to Early Childhood – Welcome to the Community! Deb Norris

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Shelburne Farms
Instructor: Jed Norris and Cynthia Greene

This course will focus on Community part of the 3 C’s model of Farm to Early Childhood Education (FTEC). Participants will be examining the resources available within in their community, building strategies for accessing those opportunities and developing skills to support our youngest community members in being a part of the community that surrounds them. Vermont is really fortunate to also have statewide programs that are great resources and whom we will connect with for educators like Vermont Harvest of the Month, Vermont Community Garden Network, Chittenden Solid Waste District and ECHO.
