What is Middlebury FoodWorks?
An innovative summer leadership program combining academic and experiential learning in food systems:
What does it mean for you?
"FoodWorks showed me the social, environmental, and economic value of farms beyond purely producing food. I want to connect more people with their land, environment, and food systems in a meaningful way. My cheese making operation will be open to Middlebury students as a place to learn about small-scale, sustainable farming and I hope to one day welcome FoodWorks interns!"
(Linnea received a Watson fellowship to study cheese around the world, before returning to VT to make cheese at Double Star Farm)
Summer 2015: May 31 to August 1

"My summer in Louisville, KY as part of the FoodWorks program was incredibly transformative. I experienced first-hand the power of community organizing to contribute to the creation of a just and sustainable food system. Because of my experience with FoodWorks I am both more grounded in the reality of what building the new economy looks like at the grassroots and empowered in my ability to instigate meaningful change in the world."
