DHS teacher Chris Billingsley sends in an announcement from the new Youth Programs Manager at the Oakhurst Community Garden, Myriam Van Dorp, announcing a four-part Farm-to-School workshop for 28 City Schools of Decatur employees.
Here are some of the details from the note…
The overall goal of the workshop series is to empower and inspire CSD employees to incorporate Farm to School concepts into their daily, standards-based instruction, as well as introduce them to community resources.
The workshops will include food, farm and nutrition lesson plans, hands-on cooking and taste testing activities, and in-depth organic gardening practices. The workshop series will provide training and resources for teachers to use while designing experiences that integrate Farm to School into classroom learning.
These experiences will be compiled into a Farm to School resource guide that can inspire others.
