Meet College Prep Elementary & Get Involved with the Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund

College Prep Elementary
St. Paul, Minnesota

The goal of our project was to expose five- and six-year-old kindergarten students to different varieties of organic fruits and vegetables. Many of our students are English Language Learners and have never seen most fruits and vegetables. During this school year we had successful tastings for a large variety of different fruits and vegetables. Many students tasted different foods that they had never had before.

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

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.

Meet Pacific Elementary School: A Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund Recipient

Pacific Elementary School
Davenport, California

This March, we planted seven apple trees and one persimmon tree with transitional kindergarten, kindergarten, first, second, fifth, and sixth grade classes all taking part in the process. In November, we had CCOF board members visit for lunch and visit with our fifth and sixth grade classes. We purchased two citrus trees, fencing, irrigation and received a donated avocado tree. Our eventual goal is to have students harvest fruit for our student’s meal and snack program.

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

Sierra Madre Elementary School

Students created an organic enriched garden studying soil composition and composting methods. They collected scraps from the cafeteria to compost into rich soil. In addition, they incorporated other organic material to enrich the soil organically. Students also learned the importance of giving back to the environment and creating healthy environments.
