Education Days

Activities for students include topics related to food, nutrition, farming, environment and other agricultural issues. A field trip like no other!

The goal of the Farm Gate to Dinner Plate education days is to have students learn more about how their food is produced.  Activities will include topics related to food, nutrition, farming, environment and other agricultural issues.  Each student will rotate through a series of interactive presentations.  It is a full day with the students visiting all stations.  Please note the children will visit a barn area with animals.

It is hoped that teachers will spend time in the classroom prior to this education day, discussing general aspects of food production, so the students will have some awareness of their food before they attend.  Each teacher will receive a teacher’s kit with information on local commodities and in-class curriculum based teaching aids for follow-up to their trip.
