Farm-to-Plate

Sustainable Agriculture

Farm to Plate reconnects students to food production, farming and the natural environment. It helps to preserve natural resources while strengthening communities. Children are growing up not knowing where their food comes from – not just how food is produced but also how food is grown.

                                                                                                                                    

Agricultural in the Classroom

(In partnership with Arizona and Yavapai County Farm Bureau's)

After listening to a story, students explore the food production process and participate in a STEM activity each quarter. All books will stay in the classrooms to encourage young readers to increase their vocabulary and knowledge.
