Overview

This session includes background information and an update of the Arkansas Farm to School Program, including program updates from across the state and the resources that are available to communities. Connections will be made tying Arkansas Farm to School Program specifics to community development. Transforming a place or community isn’t only accomplished by new infrastructure such as roads, sidewalks, new businesses, etc., but also amenities such as community gardens, which allows for a local, healthy food source and brings the community together. The mission of the Arkansas Farm to School Program will be tied to how it will positively change future generations, which, in turn may create a higher desire of different development patterns, including  walkability, more local farms, community gardens, etc.
