Montana Farm to School Institute Accepting Applications
NCAT is a project partner in the Montana Farm to School Institute, a year-long program intended to ignite, grow, and sustain farm to school action within Montana schools and communities by providing training and support, and facilitating team building and action planning. The goal of the Institute is for farm to school teams representing Montana schools or school districts to develop one-year farm to school action plans which will be implemented during the 2022-2023 school year. Three school districts will be selected from across the state to participate in this first year. Each team, ranging from four to eight members of the school community, will be assigned a trained Farm to School Coach who will help facilitate the process of developing an action plan. The Institute kicks off with a three-day Summer Retreat from August 16-18, 2022, at Chico Hot Springs. Applications to participate in the program are due by March 25, 2022.
