Description:
 Agriculture Literacy Week and Simple Suppers

Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont works to promote organic practices to build an economically viable, ecologically sound and socially just Vermont agricultural system that benefits all living things. In partnership with VT Department of Libraries, VT Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets we are celebrating the tenth annual VT Agricultural Literacy Week, held the 3rd week of November. Every year we pick a different agricultural theme and this year will be “Cooking in the Library.”

With local libraries and partner organizations over the years we have increased awareness of local agriculture and reach hundreds of community members statewide. We have created an activity, known as “Simple Suppers” for libraries to engage community members in the theme by cooking a simple meal together, highlighting seasonal and local foods.

Farm to Community - Simple Suppers

“Bringing the community and farmers together to create and share the bounty of Vermont’s harvest”

Goals:

● To bring different sectors of the community together (library patrons, non-library patrons, NOFA/Non NOFA members, other community organizations (4-H, Farm to School, Senior Center, etc)

● To highlight and celebrate local foods and farmers

● To share the harvest through a hands-on cooking experience

● To highlight ingredients from community farms and home gardens

● To educate the public about NOFA-VT and gain new membership
