The Abundant Table offers innovative, farm-based programs for public schools and school-aged children (preK-12) to promote healthy eating, good nutrition, environmental stewardship, and a greater connection to our diverse agricultural community. Visiting youth engage their bodies, senses, and minds while exploring farm eco-systems, plant biology, soil science, organic farming practices, global and local food systems and economies.
During our 1-3 hour farm field trips, participants will get to:
- Help plant, weed, and harvest seasonal vegetables with the farmers in the field
- Prepare and eat the “fruits” of their labor together on the farm-from a simple carrot snack to veggie “burritos” to kale smoothies
- Raise their own questions and hear the stories of Join the Farm! farmworkers during an interactive question and answer time
- Older participants may also learn about composting, water conservation, ecology, the local and global food system, and food preparation techniques.
