THE STORY:

"I love this classroom!" -Prospect Point 1st grader after harvesting in the garden and making salsa, Fall 2016. 

 "This has been such a successful year for garden lessons in 2nd grade. I wish more classes participated regularly. My anecdotal informal assessments show the impact on our science learning has been substantial."  -Green Park 2nd grade teacher, Fall 2016

It is spring and Walla Walla Valley Farm to School is welcoming teachers and students into our school gardens, out to local farms for field trips, and into school kitchens for another season of learning about, growing, cooking, and eating fresh and healthy food!  School gardens, local farms, and school kitchens offer safe and enriching environments where students engage in their natural world and our food system. School gardens are living laboratories, open for experimentation and observation of natural processes through our grade level specific garden lessons and activities based on the latest education science standards. Students and teachers alike love our garden lessons and activities because it is experiential learning at its best, with fun and creative exploration infused into every experience we facilitate for the Walla Walla Valley.

  "My students and I are very thankful to both of you for your time, patience and wonderful instruction. It was very helpful for my students to see in the garden the concepts we studied in Science." - Edison 3rd grade teacher, Fall 2016   

While it is relatively easy to build a garden, meaningful use of school gardens takes considerable effort, time, and money. Please join us in bringing students and teachers outside this spring by making a donation today!
