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 Western North Carolina.

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 Institute is designed to provide you—school staff and community members—the training and resources you need to implement successful Farm to School programs.

The Farm to School Institute offered multiple workshop sessions geared specifically for teachers, early childhood educators, chefs, parents, and child nutrition staff.
