You’re invited to the PA Farm to School Network’s (PFSN) June virtual open house for a storytelling workshop.

Stories are a powerful tool for farm to school practitioners. Storytelling can be an integral part of farm to school education, seeking funding for your program, spreading the word about your successes and advocating for supportive policies. During the open house on June 6 from 3:00-4:30 PM, EST, we will discuss how to be an effective storyteller and use those stories to expand your farm to school activities, share inspiration with other practitioners, and advocate for statewide farm to school policies and funding.

Featured presenter, Barbie Izquierdo, Director of Advocacy with Feeding America, speaker, and activist, will lead a storytelling workshop and share how storytelling has impacted her own work in advocacy and community organizing. 

Participants will have the opportunity to learn how other farm to school practitioners utilize storytelling to share their successes, engage students and communities, secure funding, and advocate for farm to school policies. There will also be time for networking and small group discussions where you can consider why storytelling could help support your farm to school programming and how you can start telling your story right away!
