Farm to School Professional Development Course Offered in Partnership with Vermont FEED

Join Upper Valley Farm to School and Vermont FEED for Integrating Farm to School into the Classroom with Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. This professional development  course is designed for classroom teachers who are looking to deepen or expand their curriculum and project-based learning opportunities related to Farm to School including: nutrition, food systems, classroom cooking, and garden-based education.  Based on the feedback from past classes, this course has been developed with the needs of teachers in mind.  Designed to be dynamic and democratic, this emergent course will offer teachers the time and space to focus on projects of their choice, while also providing opportunities to learn from colleagues and others leaders in the field of Farm to School.  Interactive class sessions will feature a blend of individual work time, connections to standards, peer to peer feedback, resource sharing, hands-on food preparation, and large and small group discussions.

We are very fortunate to be able to provide free tuition to all New Hampshire teachers. New Hampshire teachers will also be eligible to apply for a mini-grant to support a farm to school project in their school. Funding for this opportunity is from the Wellborn Ecology Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.
