We are pleased to be partnering with Farm to Institution New England and the Vela Foundation to host this inaugural gathering of the campus farmer community in New England.  This one-day summit will be participatory in nature and may result in the establishment of a more official “Campus Farmer Network” if this is deemed a priority by attendees.  We are part of a community of colleges with gardens or farms on or near their campuses, and we are organizing this summit to offer campus farmers and their friends an opportunity to gather to learn “what’s growing on your campus.”
