Tips for bringing Farm to School Education to your school

Whether you’re helping conduct a Farm to School education program, or just encouraging students’ class or school to participate in one, the following advice will help explore options for your program.

  1. Tie farm and food into existing lessons. Cooking makes great math and nutrition lessons, and gardens are great places to learn about science, math and inspire gardening at home.
  2. Use existing models. There are many fun and engaging resources to incorporate into your Farm to School program.
