Every year PVGrows hosts two (Fall and Spring) networking forums open to anyone working to build a healthy Pioneer Valley Food System.
Participation in the Forums allows PVGrows Members to:
1. Broaden and deepen your relationships with others. The idea is that each of us plays a unique role in the development of the food system, and we need to connect to people in other roles.
2. Learn about the components of the Pioneer Valley food system. PVGrows Forums are open to all levels of experience, and are designed to be interactive so that we learn from each other.
3. Take collaborative action. PVGrows aims to amplify the good work that you are already doing. Working Groups are a flexible tool for moving your work forward with new partners.
To date, individuals from over 125 organizations, agencies, and initiatives have participated in PVGrows Forums.
