How much do kids in your community know about farming and where their food comes from? Share your expertise to improve kids’ understanding of agriculture and the benefits of eating wholesome, locally grown food! Partner with a teacher at a school near you to share about farming in Georgia or lead a mini-lesson around a fun activity at the market.
- Georgia Grown has developed excellent resources for kids in and out of the classroom, including a coloring book and cookbook, and all are available for download on their Feed My School site.
- Georgia Organics has a bounty school-related resources. Check out one of their 5-unit kindergarten-2nd grade lesson plans here!
