Farm to school programming connects classrooms, the cafeteria, and the community—helping children develop healthy relationships with food and enriching the overall educational experience for children and adults alike. The movement is growing, nationally and here in the southeast.
With more than 10 years of experience in farm to school training and programming, ASAP’s Growing Minds Farm to School Program offers a combination of creative ideas and practical applications for school environments. Our Farm to School Conference is designed to provide you—school staff and community members—the training and resources you need to implement successful farm to school programs.
This year’s Farm to School Conference will offer multiple workshop sessions geared specifically for teachers, early childhood educators, parents, community health professionals, and child nutrition staff. Join educators from across the southeast to strengthen existing programs and jump start new farm to school efforts in your community!
This year’s conference will feature workshops focused on six specialized tracks as well as networking opportunities and state meetings for individuals from NC, SC, GA, TN, KY, FL, MS, and AL. Each track will feature content for folks new to farm to school as well as those that want to improve their existing programs.
