Blooming Prairie Foundation Grant Supports School Greenhouses

We have exciting news for the 2016-2017 school year. Thanks to the Blooming Prairie Foundation, the Center for Rural Affairs will work one-on-one with four schools to develop and support a network of school greenhouses active in fruit and/or vegetable production.

The schools will receive expert guidance and initial start-up funds from the Center. Opportunities to network and creatively address best practices will continue through the school year.

Dairy Council Grant Funds Healthy Eating & Physical Activity Initiatives in Schools

Fuel Up to Play 60 is a student-led wellness initiative that is a partnership between the Dairy Council and the National Football League. It offers many wellness resources to schools, including Farm to School resources.

Schools can learn more about our Midwest Dairy Association Farm to School resources here. You’ll find a short, fun video about dairy farming (highly recommended!). Lots of other Dairy Farm Facts are available too. You can even request a dairy farmer to visit your school!
