SCSC-Starting a School Garden Program and Integrating Farm to School in Your Classroom (6-12)

 Schools play a critical role in providing students with avenues to increase their knowledge of how food is grown and produced, their understanding of the importance of healthy, nutritious food to their health and development, and their ability to make healthy food and beverage choices. In farm to school, students participate in education activities related to agriculture, food, health, or nutrition. Education can happen through lessons in a school garden and the classroom. It can come through a curriculum tailored to illuminate healthy nutrition while also providing take-home recipes for children to try with their parents or guardians. It can come through the cafeteria providing taste tests of locally grown fruits and vegetables and providing learning materials that enhance children’s understanding of the foods they’re consuming. Additionally, even more advanced lessons focused on sciences and math can include elements focused on plants, animals, the natural world, and how our overall health is connected to other processes. This course is recommended to 6-12 teachers and educators, such as science, family and consumer science, culinary arts, and agriculture teachers who have a base understanding of farm to school who are looking to provide classroom farm
