What is Farm Day?
Farm Day is a 5-hour learning adventure for urban visitors. Participants travel to farms to learn where nutrition begins. Our goal is to show students how their food is grown and harvested by the high-tech modern farming industry. This environmental learning experience plants seeds for basic understanding of healthy eating.
What do they do?
Students of all ages from urban areas are introduced to an agricultural setting and presented with a healthy diet and active schedule. They visit fields, cook a meal with ingredients produced on the farm, and engage with a local farmer. The focus is a complete healthy lifestyle. Farm visitors are rewarded by eating the food that they work together to cook.
Who do we work with?
We partner with local organizations to bring students, sponsors, and teachers to farms in their area. Farm hosts open their gates to show visitors where nutrition begins. When Farm Day participants go home, they have a natural connection to associate their food choices with lessons and experiences from the farm.
