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.
