I am excited to let you know that I’ve applied for a scholarship to attend the 8th National Farm to Cafeteria Conference: Moving Forward Together, June 2-4, 2016 in Madison, Wisconsin.
Our long term goal is to have a garden program in every school and neighborhood in La Plata County. This training will provide me with the tools and training I need in order to figure out how to make this goal a reality.
In order to be able to attend, I need to raise the registration fees and airline costs:
Registration fees: $400 (base registration)
Travel: $350 (Flying from Denver to Madison, economy seat. I will drive to Denver at my own expense.)
Lodging: $180 ($60/night x 3 nights, sharing economy room)
This conference is extremely important to me but I can’t attend without your help. Please support me by visiting https://www.barnraiser.us/projects/building-farm-to-school-leaders-in-colorado and making a donation.
Livewell Colorado is hosting this Barnraiser site to send a large delegation from CO to the conference. This Barnraiser page will only be available through February, so I have a short period of time to raise the funds.
Would you consider making a small donation today? Click here to donate.
If 62 people each gave $15 then I would have the funds to go!
Thank you for supporting me and the Farm to School movement. In doing so, you are helping me bring vital information and expertise back to our community.
(Our Board Member and 9R Student Nutrition Services Director, Krista Garand is also seeking support to attend the conference. Help us go as a team so we can save on lodging expenses and learn together!)
