About

Farm to school is a movement to improve the health of all school aged children and communities, while supporting local and regional farmers. Through access to nutritious food, and sensory-based garden education, youth learn to appreciate and connect with where their food comes from.

In pursuit of this goal Wellspring, has partnered with Kewaskum, Grafton and Cedarburg school districts, among others, in piloting initiatives to engage and teach youth about gardening and the source of their food. These "farm to school" programs are tailored to each school and involve four program areas.

We are looking for volunteers interested in helping to teach the monthly lessons and assist with the monthly Harvest of the Month Tastings at Kewaskum Elementary.

Tastings take place 11:15-1pm.

Lessons take place 10-10:35am, 10:35-11:10am, and 1:15-1:50pm
