Celebrate Farm to School Month
In honor of National Farm to School Month, Yolo Farm to Fork is excited to announce our edible garden teaching guide.
You can download your free copy here or by clicking on the image. The guide provides teachers and parents with a month by month curriculum of activities to maintain an edible garden throughout the year. Designed for the young child, many of the activities can be used with older children as well. A Garden Companion for the Young Child is produced and distributed in partnership with the Yolo County Office of Education – Early Childhood Education Program.

Congratulations to all the schools who will be attending Farm Visits this fall at the UC Davis Student Farm, Fiery Ginger Farm, Root Cause Farm, Capay Organic, and Full Belly Farm.
