FARM-TO-SCHOOL WEEK WITH RICHMOND COUNTY SCHOOLS

FARM-TO-SCHOOL WEEK WITH RICHMOND COUNTY SCHOOLS

Mar 17, 2017Gardening Programs for Youth

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.
