Upcoming Trainings and Webinars for Community Food Projects


CFP: Facilitating Participation and Partnerships

May 15, 2018, 1:00pm EST

Working in partnership is often promoted, but individual achievement is what tends to be rewarded in our society, and we generally don’t get a lot of training in how to work with others after we graduate Kindergarten. Strong partnerships are key elements of success for Community Food Projects, and managing complex teams requires facilitation know-how. This webinar will feature facilitation skills and meeting methods that will help to foster shared awareness, collective analysis, and full participation that enable productive and lasting partnerships. Conducted by Aley Kent, Technical Advisor Food & Agriculture, International Rescue Committee | US Programs.


Values-Based and Vision-led Program Design

July (Date TBD)

Community Food Projects often aim to address several issues in a community. But how can we get beyond fixing problems and into taking practical steps towards a shared vision? How can we plan projects that include an array of perspectives and actors, and engage them in an analysis of resources and options for fitting the pieces together? This webinar will feature a structure for project planning and several community engagement and meeting tools for collective visioning, community assessments, and strategy building to support collaborative planning efforts. 

Registration will open in June.


None scheduled at this time.
