Did you know October is National Farm to School Month? Princeton Montessori School has been working with local farmers to bring nutrition and food cycle education to our students, give kids hands on experiences on a farm, and build farm to school connections for our families.
National Farm to School Month is a time to celebrate the connections happening all over the country between children and local food! The 2016 National Farm to School Month theme, One Small Step, celebrates the simple ways anyone can get informed, get involved and take action to advance farm to school in their own communities and across the country. Learn more about National Farm to School Month and take the One Small Step Pledge by visiting the National Farm to School Network’s website, farmtoschool.org.
Last spring the Middle School students students visited Snipes Farm in Morrisville, PA in order to experience a working sustainable farm in conjunction with their year-long work with food systems and food issues. Stay tuned for more updates as the year goes on!
The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood.
