About

The Greeley-Evans District 6 Farm to School program focuses on purchasing local foods, educating students about the economic and health benefits of eating local foods, and hands-on learning in school gardens. For the 2016-17 school year, we are supporting four school gardens across the district, along with an additional 5 schools who wish to expand or create garden programs. We are currently recruiting volunteers to help maintain the gardens (particularly during the summer months, when school is out) and occasionally assist with garden lessons. Garden maintenance would mostly involve weeding, watering, and harvesting at our gardens, and a short training is provided- all knowledge and experience levels are welcome! If interested and available, volunteers would also be welcome to shadow garden lessons, which we have designed to be aligned to CO state standards for the specific grade level and subject being taught. Longer-term volunteers would be given the opportunity to design and lead their own lessons, if desired. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY- the most important traits we look for are flexibility, willingness to learn new skills, and an excitement about kids and gardening!
