The Farm to School Program engages the children in the experience of the natural world and healthy eating habits. We recognize that children’s affinity for the natural world is strongest at an early age when they are most alert and impressionable. Being in nature helps develop our empathy, recognizing the interdependence of all living things.
The Farm to School program is three-fold, where the children are involved with gardening, preparation of the food, and eating healthy, delicious meals. The program began in 2011 with the creation of a Naturalist position and expanded to the addition of a tasty, hearty lunch cooked in our school each day in conjunction with the creation of a Farm to School Coordinator.
