SAFFFE is a grassroots initiative for people who are passionate about the future of local family farms. Just a little of your time Will make a difference!
The Kids 2 Farm 2 Table Children’s Program will allow our youth to explore the
farming experience in their own community on a working farm. It will help them understand the different growing knowledge needed for tropical versus northern production of fresh fruits and vegetables.
A program will be designed which includes an experiential education model (i.e. doing, reflecting, and applying). The farm team will involve participants in gardening and tasting experiences that build knowledge and understanding through a process of inquiry and reflection.
With the help of volunteer chefs and fresh food advocates, this program can be part of a growing movement to transform the way nutrition is taught. The instruction will follow the “rainbow on your plate” philosophy that promotes a diet incorporating a diverse set of colorful whole foods.
This approach ensures that our students learn to eat a balanced diet.
