Food and agritourism is a dynamic and growing sector in Vermont and the Northeast Kingdom. The goal of this workshop is to share information and encourage coordination among the many efforts underway in the Kingdom and statewide to capitalize on the opportunities food tourism can deliver.

We will:

*Highlight relevant Vermont-wide and NEK food and agritourism strategy efforts;
*Identify ways for the NEK to better position itself for food and agritourism; and
*Find efficiencies in how local, regional and statewide initiatives can work together.

Presenters and resource people for this facilitated discussion will include:
Helen Labun, Executive Director, Vermont Fresh Network
Jake Claro, Director, VT Farm to Plate
Alissa Mathews, Agriculture Development Coordinator, VT Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets
