About the trainings

By participating in the trainings, you will have improved skills for working in food systems within your community— whether local, regional, state or community of practice.

  • Local Food Leader seeks to build core skills for engagement, including facilitation, evaluation, building trust and general understanding of the food system.
  • Community Food Systems equips participants in various skill sets and facilitation methods, as well as team-building. You will gain the ability to bring projects from thinking to project implementation for reaching systems-based goals.

Bonus discount
