Join farmers and preschool providers for this full day forum and discover strategies for bringing joy and wonder to early childhood through agriculture. This full day gathering will give you tools for engaging children on a farm or in a garden, as well as tips for bringing agriculture into the classroom and/or meal and snack programs. Share activities, explore safety and risk, try kid-friendly recipes, and discuss the exciting intersection where seed to table meets preschool! 

Afternoon field trips to nearby farms are included in the cost of registration. Field trips will be hands-on and activity-based and are designed to provide you with ideas for bringing farm and food-based education to your students!  Participants are asked to drive themselves or carpool to the farms.

Hello All.  I am interested in joining this forum and attending on October 5th.  I will keep an eye out for the registration to be open.

yes, stay tuned to this page.  The Eventbrite registration site is being created now. We will post it on this page, and our Facebook page when we have it up and running.  Looking forward to seeing you there!

I'm interested too, we have been running a mobile farm program (K-6) for a year with moderate success, but we are always looking to see how others programs work and share our experience as well.
