Meet Kimbark Elementary School & Get Involved with the Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund

Since 2014, the Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund has partnered with the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom to administer the Look at Agriculture…Organically! grant program for K-8 teachers who teach their students about organic in the classroom. Each week, visit our blog to hear from the teachers who received Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund grants for their schools about the projects they funded.

Find out how to apply for your own Future Organic Farmer Grant.

Kimbark Elementary School
San Bernardino, California

Kimbark Elementary School students planted a winter garden with crops including broccoli, two types of kale, cauliflower, cabbage, and snap peas. Students learned about organic farming as they noticed aphids and insect larvae on the plants, followed by the ladybugs that were there to eat the other bugs. Students enjoyed making smoothies and salads from the vegetable harvest and found that their own perceptions about healthy food were changing.

The students absolutely loved this project. They had a chance to see how easy it is to grow your own food, the importance of organic farming, and how healthy foods can be delicious and satisfying as well. Students are all ready for our spring garden to be planted and to try a variety of summer veggies.

Thank you to Kimbark Elementary School for sharing your organic project!

Please join us in congratulating the recipients of the CCOF Foundation’s Future Organic Farmer Grants.
