Farm and Garden-Enhanced Nutrition Education

The California School Garden Training Program is training 1,500 educators to create and use garden spaces for edible education. In this workshop we will describe our training model. We’ll focus on free resources to conduct nutrition education and share some hands-on lessons. With more than 65 school gardens and a cutting-edge farm-to-school program, Oakland Unified School District is a great example of a district-wide garden program. Learn from their successes and challenges how best to incorporate gardens into farm-to-school programs.
