FARM-TO-SCHOOL WEEK WITH RICHMOND COUNTY SCHOOLS

FARM-TO-SCHOOL WEEK WITH RICHMOND COUNTY SCHOOLS

Mar 17, 2017 | Education, School Group Education

We were THRILLED when Arielle Weekly, nutrition educator for Richmond County Board of Education, called us up and said: “We got the Feed My School grant!”  These federal funds allowed her and her colleagues to launch a full week of farm-to-school activities at a South Augusta elementary … with plans to do two more over three years.

What an honor it was for Augusta Locally Grown to be there  – among fellow good food educators and farmers –  to help teach our younger generation about the healthy, delicious goodness of locally grown, seasonal foods.
