How do you get kids to eat the fruit and veggies they’ve grown in the garden? Join Yolo Farm to Fork for our GROWING LUNCH Workshop on August 11th and 12th to learn how you can use your existing or new school garden to enhance nutrition education for children to promote the consumption of fruits and vegetables. Participants will learn about Yolo Farm to Fork’s new garden-to-cafeteria program, how to build a school garden, what and when to plant, how to engage volunteers, parents, and teacher, and connecting the garden to the classroom. The workshop will include hands-on learning activities, take-home curriculum ideas, and practical ‘how to’ information to help sustain your edible garden. A limited number of scholarships are available.

Yolo Farm to Fork is a nonprofit organization supporting edible school gardens and providing garden-centered and farm-based education to students. We are dedicated to bringing locally grown farm-fresh food to school meals and to reducing waste through recycling and composting. Our programs provide the real-life resources for kids to improve nutrition habits, fight obesity and integrate garden learning with classroom instruction while sustaining edible school gardens.

Help us keep them growing healthy eating habits!
