Description
Teachers are essential partners in ensuring that the next generation is invested in a sustainable food system. The Yellow Farmhouse professional development program offers the opportunity for teachers to learn about key concepts of sustainable agriculture, including soil health, crop rotation, and composting. Teachers participate in experiential activities designed to spark dialogue around food system issues such as food waste, access, and seasonality. During this no-cost, day-long program, teachers work together to prepare and share a homemade meal centered around farm-fresh ingredients. Teachers will spend time on a working farm as well as in the kitchen and will have opportunities to network and collaborate on lesson planning and curriculum development.
