Thank you for your interest in the Jones Valley Teaching Farm "POWER OF FOOD" Giving Campaign. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to cover a portion of the costs for our two after school programs: Farm Club and Student-Run Market.
1. Farm Club: Farm Club after school programs provide an opportunity for students to become stewards of their school's Teaching Farm. They help maintain the outdoor classroom and prepare food with the produce they have grown. All classes are led by a Jones Valley Teaching Farm instructor.
2.Student-Run Market: Each Fall and Spring, teams of students sell produce to their teachers, parents, and community members at each school site. Through an accompanying curriculum, students learn new math skills and best practices in running their own small business, while providing direct access to produce, fruit, and flowers.
