Eating Learning Growing
About the Eating Learning Growing Workshops
This fall, the Center for Ecoliteracy hosted Eating Learning Growing, professional development workshops for educators on culturally relevant farm to school education.
Educators learned how to improve student outcomes by welcoming diverse student voices, histories, learning styles, and values into their classrooms. Culturally relevant teaching leads to students, especially students of color, having more academic success, increased engagement, and better attendance. By providing culturally-relevant farm to school education, we can connect students to local agriculture and encourage students to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables.
