EDUO 9534: Introduction to Farm to School

View the Course Syllabus

Instructor: Heather Ridge

This course is designed for K-12 teachers, administrators and other educators who wish to learn more about the growing Farm to School movement in K-12 education. The term "farm to school" encompasses efforts that bring local or regionally produced foods into school cafeterias while supporting hands-on learning activities such as school gardening, farm visits, and culinary classes to support both academic learning and foster a connection between local food and healthy eating. It encourages the integration of food-related education into the classroom and develops connections between the school and the local agricultural community. This 1-credit course is delivered in an online, self-paced format that includes reading, research and reflection. It is the prerequisite for the 3-credit course, EDUO--- Farm to School Practicum.
