The theme of this year's Gathering is "Transformative Change".

Why Transformative Change? There is a growing sense in Vermont and the Farm to Plate Network that now is the time to "be brave" in how we work together to address some of the most pressing issues facing our state, region, and world. Business as usual no longer feels up to the task of addressing issues like climate change, economic inequality, industry and market consolidation, food insecurity, and racial inequity.

To emerge out of the next decade with climate resilience and environmental sustainability, shared economic prosperity, food security, and racial equity, together we need to cultivate new mindsets, culture, institutions, business models, and behaviors that can transform the structure, function, and purpose of our food system.

Over two days, we will engage in transformational thinking and practice to better understand how we can create and support the conditions for transformational change. Through personal stories and breakout sessions, we’ll learn about the successes and struggles of those in Vermont’s food system who are already involved in transformational work.

Breakout sessions highlight the different ways transformation is happening within Vermont and the Northeast region’s food system. They will provide applied lessons and skill building to guide and improve work happening across the food system, introduce new ways of thinking or provocative ideas to challenge our understanding of existing norms, and engage participants in activities designed to build partnership and collaboration.

Check out our event page to read full breakout session descriptions.
