Our elementary school curriculum offers the following:
- Interactive presentation about where food comes from, how it is grown, and why eating healthy food is better for one’s health and the environment. The discussion encourages students to recognize issues within their immediate food system, and creative solutions to make it more sustainable.
- The presentation is 20 minutes long and can be given as a school-wide assembly or to individual classes.
- 20 minute greenhouse tours to smaller groups or individual classes. The tour will demonstrate the sustainable farming methods we are using, and allow students to see first hand how food is grown. At the end of the tour, we will teach students how to start their own seeds, which they can take home with them.. Tours are most effective in groups of 25 students or less.
- All school programs include the opportunity for a 30-45 minute consultation with faculty, and administrators on how to implement a school garden. If your school already has a school garden, we will provide insights on how to make the garden more sustainable and/or productive.
