The Education and Wellness group is comprised of food producers, health care and public health professionals, school health coordinators, food service directors, land trust representatives, and community members.

We are currently looking for a new leader for this work group!


The group does not have a regular meeting schedule yet. To learn more or become involved with the Education & Wellness group,  please send inquiries to merrymeetingfc@gmail.com.


The group hopes to establish a resources list of everything that could be helpful to community members, from markets that accept EBT, to possible volunteers for school gardens, to energy resources for farmers, etc. The group is also a resource for other work groups seeking to engage in education and outreach activities.
