Options may include: introductory lessons on where food comes from; farm field trips; meals following a farm visit using vegetables harvested by students; garden sessions in the spring or fall; a “tasting table” featuring a sampling of freshly harvested vegetables; and more.
The school garden prize includes basic supplies, including seeds, soil and select tools, and assistance from a gardening expert to get the garden started.
