The Lifecycle of Farm to School was a USDA funded grant project implemented by the DPI School Nutrition Team. The project featured eight experiential workshops, highlighting stages of a school garden over a year timeframe. Project goals included expanding school nutrition professional’s Farm to School (F2S) teams, providing opportunities for peer-to-peer mentoring, equitably supporting F2S activities and sustaining F2S efforts.

The School Nutrition Team partnered with the Wisconsin Evaluation Collaborative to evaluate the success of the Lifecycle of Farm to School Workshop series. Check out the Lifecycle Of F2S Evaluation Report to see the results.
