Inspired by The Mostly Costly Journey, Vermont Folklife and our partners at Shelburne Farms are offering an afternoon workshop exploring counter narratives in food systems grounded in Vermont. Multiple Perspectives and Counter Narratives in Vermont’s Food System is a workshop for K-12 educators and partners:
DATE: Thursday, January 19, 2023
TIME: 12:00 – 4:00PM
LOCATION: Vermont Historical Society, Vermont History Center, 60 Washington Street, Barre, VT
The workshop will open with an illuminating conversation with project editor/author and The Huertas Project co-director, Teresa Mares. Then we will support educators in a guided engagement with a variety of teaching resources from Vermont Folklife’s Teaching with Primary Sources project, Vermont Harvest of the Month (Dairy), the Shelburne Farms Institute for Sustainable Schools, and the Vermont Historical Society. We’ll wrap up the day with work time for you to integrate these resources into your spring curriculum, dream up project plans, and exchange ideas with peers from around the state.
