Case Studies: Training the Trainers in Community-Based Food Systems
Supported by a Southern SARE Professional Development Program grant, the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) led a two year train-the-trainer project in North Carolina to expand the state’s capacity to assist in the development of community-based food systems. Extension-led teams from six counties attended a two-day workshop on project planning and development, and returned to their respective counties to plan and implement a community-based project. These six trainers then trained teams in six other counties in North Carolina who proceeded to implement their own programs.
In addition to these case studies, training resources, lessons learned and webinars developed during the project can be found on the CEFS website.
