Through our partnership with EduCulture we provide environmental education to children through school gardens, trips to working farms, culinary arts curriculum, a food waste program, and a school lunch program. As a result, we contribute to the preservation of local sustainable agriculture, nurturing farm stewardship and food citizenship, and inspiring young people to become co-producers in their food communities.
Program highlights from the last year include:
Impacted 1,600 students though the Edible Education program, which served young people in K-12th grade.
Developed a high school and middle school course in edible education.
Introduced elementary students to working farms including Suyematsu Farm, Morales Farm, Heyday Farm, and Middlefield Farm.
Supported a school garden specialist to help train teachers and empower them to connect their curriculum to school gardens.
