Farm to Early Childhood in New England (FINE)
FINE is excited to announce the publication of Farm to Early Childhood in New England: an Ecosystem Assessment. This illustrated and interactive overview of the farm to early childhood space across the six New England states was designed to help regional interest holders better understand the early childhood sector and to identify the key opportunities for expanding farm to early childhood activity across the six New England states. This assessment is part of the Northeast Farm to Early Childhood Project, a collaborative effort of Farm to Institution New England and the Northeast Farm to School Collaborative.
