What’s Growing On is Working Landscapes’ farm-to-school education program aimed at increasing awareness of locally-grown foods and food system literacy across northeastern North Carolina. In cafeterias and classrooms, we get students, their families, and school personnel excited about healthy, local eating, school gardens and transforming the food system.
What’s Growing On provides monthly deliveries to elementary classrooms that include a lesson, activities, crafts, stickers, and everything needed to make and enjoy a healthy snack in class. These deliveries are designed to make it easy and fun to integrate food system literacy and healthy eating into the school day.
We also work with school cafeterias to plan and implement taste tests or help get healthy, local produce or meat on the school cafeteria line.
We have experience working with childcare centers, after school programs, camps and more to provide opportunities to enjoy healthy, local food or connect with the great outdoors. We can help with taste tests, farm visits, school gardens, outdoor classrooms and environmental education.
