Farm to School Month, Great Apple Crunch - Where do I start?!

Below you’ll find resources and links to help you put together a successful Farm to School Month Activity.  Feel free to download, borrow or make anything your own.  Farm to School is not about getting overly complicated, we encourage you to enhance or highlight what you might already be doing or start with an activity that is easy to implement.  Either way, you’ll easily be able to build from there!

Are you taking a family road trip in August? If you're traveling in Nebraska, your kids should be able to recognize field corn and soybeans by mile marker 20. But take a turn north into Litchfield. Then stop and meander into the 72’ x 36’ greenhouse and 28’ x 70’ retail produce store just off the highway. You’ll see a dozen or more varieties of vegetables growing year round.

Kids and Carrots

Nothing says happy and healthy like an image of children harvesting, cleaning, or eating a carrot. Seriously, not everyone likes carrots, but when you see a child gardening, harvesting carrots, preparing them, or eating a bunch of carrots, you just know there is something good, wholesome, and healthy about that image. And of course, it doesn’t have to be carrots – beets, cabbages, cucumbers, etc. all work too.
