Farm to Cafeteria Canada has shared a recording and summary from two recent webinars, one exploring Sea to School and one on The Three sisters: history, culture and ways of growing.

Sea to School is a term used to describe programs that procure local sustainable seafood for schools and promote ocean literacy. Food First NL and Fishing for Success hosted this webinar to explore Sea to School programs across Canada and the US, the opportunities and challenges they experience, and why in certain coastal regions like Newfoundland and Labrador it has been difficult to develop Sea to School programs.

A written summary is available from The Three Sisters webinar, which F2CC hosted in collaboration with the Public Health Association of BC. In this webinar, Elder Lix Lopez explained the ways of growing squash, beans and corn, along with his story of coming to Vancouver, and finding ways to continue his Mayan heritage and culture.
