We were an exhibitor at the Growing Minds Southeast Farm to School Conference in Greenville, SC on September 24. As the Growing Minds Website says, “Farm to school programming connects classrooms, the cafeteria, and the community—helping children develop healthy relationships with food and enriching the overall educational experience for children and adults alike. The movement is growing, nationally and here in the southeast.”
We had the pleasure of meeting many people involved in this wonderful project– from teachers and school administrators to program organizers and gardeners and to the chefs and cafeteria staff who finally serve the food to the kids.
We came away impressed with the dedication all these folks bring to their communities. We traded ideas and met some folks who gave us some welcome advice about how we can build our own program of placing Microgreens Grow Kits in more classrooms. It was a fun and enlightening weekend.
