Farm to Preschool Toolkit

The Growing Minds Farm to Preschool Toolkit contains all of our farm to preschool resources, including lesson plans, “This Week in the Garden” activity guides, “Farm to School Goes Home” parent handouts, local food sourcing guidance, and tips for cooking and gardening with young children. It also includes a resource developed by the NC Farm to Preschool Network, “Reach for the Stars with Farm to Preschool“, which aligns the Early Childhood and Infant/Toddler Environment Rating Scales (revised editions) with farm to preschool activities.

This second edition, published in 2020, is updated with a new, easy to use format and streamlined recipes. The Toolkit is available in hardcopy (see details on how to order a copy below), or as a free digital download. 

Order a Hard Copy

The Farm to Preschool Toolkit, Second Edition, is spiral bound for ease in photocopying and printed on thick, high quality paper. The price is $30/toolkit + shipping, and sales tax where applicable. Schools and churches are exempt from sales tax. Other sales tax exempt organizations must provide a copy of their sales tax exempt certificate. Due to the rise in printing costs, we are unfortunately no longer able to offer a discount on bulk Toolkit orders.

To order one or more hard copies, please email growingminds@nullasapconnections.org. Please specify the quantity you would like to order as well as the billing organization/email and the shipping address
