Stone Soup Soiree, Our Annual Farm to School Gathering
The annual spring gathering was a wonderful evening to be out at Lincoln Peak Winery. With a focus on farm to school in Addison County, members of our school communities and the general public heard updates and insights on Harvest of the Month, national Farm to School updates from Senator Leahy's office, local food trends, PAHCC students compilation of food system jobs in the county and comprehensive experiential and inspirational learning at the Cornwall school.
We thank all who attended expressing interest in both farm to school in the county and our effort to "network the network". Big thanks go out to Lincoln Peak for allowing us the space. Basin Harbor Club, Almost Home Market, Susan Pratt Catering cooked up fabulous food for the event!
