Really liking this for 4th grade ecosystems, if not for my gardening elective.

Farmers Market Visits a School

Chatom Farmers MarketFarmers Market Visits a School

In the Fencepost, a blog for the California Foundation for Ag in the Classroom, they cover a collection of farmers bringing their crops to the Chatom Elementary in Stanislaus County as part of the Central Valley Farm to School Pilot Program. I just received a Specialty Crops Grant to use next year to bring $300 worth of specialty produce to my class so they can get to try some foods they might ordinarily not try or even know about. Maybe I’ll be able to work up to an actual market visit some day. We have had the dairy cow visit through the California Dairy Council’s Mobile Dairy Classroom before, and it was a hit!
