Since 2012, The Wylde Center has been providing the Farm to School program to improve students' and families' awareness of the environment, nutrition, and gardening. By providing on-site education and garden maintenance, we deliver a high quantity and quality of garden-based education that engages students' minds and bodies in a hands-on learning experience. Through the Farm to School Program, we offer: Garden Education, conducted by our highly trained Farm to School Educator on site at your school, teaching children not only how to plant, harvest, and cook what we grow, but how we relate to our food and the environment. Choice of Classes among over two dozen classes for grades preK-12. Classes include topics such as Exploring the Garden through Art, Soil Health, Seed Adaptations, Where Does My Food Come From?, and Food Preparation, among many more - see the attached chart for our full listing.

Regular Visits, preferably on a weekly or biweekly basis, to enable as many children as possible to experience the garden and make real-world connections to their lessons. Ongoing Curriculum Development by our Farm to School Educator and Education Director to constantly improve our program, match it to your school's needs, and align it with the most current standards and practices.
