MA Farm & Sea

MA Farm & Sea to School Conference


MA Farm & Sea


Hope to see you in Western Mass at the workshop Values Matter: Institutionalizing Good Food Purchasing. NAMA’s Brett Tolley will be joining our friends at Real Food Challenge along with fishermen and farmers to discuss the values guiding the farm & sea to school movement. Click here to read more about the conference.

When we think about the farm & sea to school movement a new set of values come to mind. What exactly are these values? How are they different from the old system? And when rubber meets the road, how do we ensure these values stay in tact? Without a more thorough examination of our core values we risk creating a new system with the same foundation as the old system.

This workshop will explore a values-based approach toward institutionalizing how food moves from farm & sea to school. Hear directly from those with boots on decks and hands-in-the-soil about new ideas and practical ways that institutions can dive deeper around purchasing decisions that truly reflect their values.
