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.
