UVM’s Sustainable Food Systems Program

Standard

If you’re interested in food justice, food systems, sustainability, education, traveling, farms, etc. then you should check out the UVM’s Breakthrough Leaders Program for Sustainable Food Systems.  It’s a 2 week program: 1 week online, 1 week on campus in Vermont.  I participated last year and I had a great time.  Applications close on May 15th.

Check out the testimonials section for my and two other colleagues experiences.  If you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer what I can!
