Vermont’s Table and a scholarship opportunity

March 14, 2012 § 2 Comments

Hey all! I wanted to pass along this information because it sounds awfully fun. Sterling College in Craftsbury, VT hosts a program called Vermont’s Table, which they define as “an intensive academic program in sustainable food systems that includes practical culinary experience, frequent field trips, lessons in sustainable agriculture, and seminars in food writing and food entrepreneurism.” The program lasts for five weeks and is open to university students as well as adult learners.

The college is located a beautiful and food-focused region. Hardwick, VT of the book The Town That Food Saved is just down the road. GoodFoodJobs.com will be offering three scholarships for those who would like to attend. Application deadline is April 13, 2012. You can find more information by visiting the Good Food Jobs website: www.goodfoodjobs.com/scholarship/.

    What would YOU hope to learn and accomplish from this program? I’ve submitted an application for the program and the scholarship. Cross your fingers!!

    That’s a good question, Salamity! I think one of the important things for me would be to have another close look – in a different region – at the way the local/sustainable food system works, and the roles different people play all along the way. I’d also like to be able to spend more time learning about and practicing food writing with similarly passionate people. What about you? Best of luck – I hope you get the scholarship, and be sure to let me know if you do!
