Farm to School in the Winter

What do we do at Farm to School when it is too cold to bring students to the garden?

When it’s too cold to bring students to the garden, our Farm to School Coordinator Calin Duke brings the garden to the school. Recently she has been discussing healthy eating habits with the first graders of Nantucket Elementary School. Students shared their knowledge of the five food groups. One class discussed their favorite way to prepare broccoli; “Let my parents cook it!” said one child. Farm to School hosts a variety of lessons and activities in the school during the winter. When it is warmer, the fun continues outside in the Joyce N. Furman Youth Garden, as well. Look for upcoming activities in the spring here!
