News Release

Fist Nations Development Institute

Native Farm to School programs distinctively rely on the traditional knowledge, community, language, and deep, rich ancestral connections to land and food. To help organizations create or bolster their Native Farm to School initiatives, First Nations launched a new webinar series to provide best practices, resources, and a Q&A on challenges and opportunities.

The series is made possible by the Assistance Agreement No, NE-01F62801, awarded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Environmental Education and the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS).

Presentation materials of the first two webinars in the series are available here

Note: Participation in these webinars is not a requirement for Tuesday's webinar. All all welcome!
