This interactive training will provide those interested in volunteering with an overview of the comprehensive options available to our teachers and schools covering all aspects of the food system from seed to tray! Participants will be provided with hands-on training opportunities to better understand how these concepts connect to the current SOL goals of our teachers. Virginia Cooperative Extension will present three different lessons that can be taught in the classroom based on 1. Watersheds, water quality and pollution, 2. Soil components and health, 3. Plant needs and anatomy. LCPS School Nutrition Services will present a comprehensive lesson that can be taught in the classroom and garden based on 1. Connecting the harvest to the food system, 2. Utilizing what’s grown in the garden in creative recipes that can be created by kids, 3. Encouraging students to try new things while understanding how the food they consume impacts their health.
