Farm to School

Learning about our food

A Visit from the Farmer

IMG_4185

The Upper Elementary children participated in a hands-on workshop lead by Alec Gioseffi, the local farmer from the Cherry Valley Co-op. This is part of our Farm-to-School program, building connections between healthy food, our little school vegetable garden, larger farms, and the ecology of our area. The children were introduced to vegetables that can be grown in NJ based off the season and soil types. They tasted many types of root vegetables, gathered seeds, and planted garlic in our garden at school.  The students learned about:
• types of crops
• how they are grown
• how long it takes from seed to plate
• what type of soil crops grow in
• closely related crops: carrots, radishes, turnips, beets, and potatoes
