What is the Lifecycle of Farm to School?

The Lifecycle of Farm to School is a USDA funded grant project, implemented by the DPI School Nutrition Team. The project features eight experiential workshops, highlighting stages of a school garden over a year timeframe. Project goals include 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 first three workshops (Seed Starting, Building and Planting a School Garden, and Garden Maintenance) will be held virtually due to the ongoing pandemic.
Resources will be added to each workshop page after workshops have been completed.


The free Composting Workshop will be held virtually on Thursday, March 2nd from 1:30-4:00 PM. During this workshop you will learn about the available compost systems, the ideal conditions for composting, and how to establish partnerships in your school. Register here!
