A Home for Your Harvest

In this section, you'll learn how to engage your students in preparing or selling school garden produce for your school's snack, lunchroom, or community markets.



Questions to Consider:

  • If we want to grow food for the lunchroom, how will we engage school cafeteria staff in the planning of our garden?
  • What rules and regulations will we need to follow when handling and serving food at school?
  • What crops may be sampled or cooked in the classroom for snacks?
  • Can we profit from our garden by selling produce at a school farmer's market?
  • Are there markets in the community where we might sell produce?
  • Who will manage harvest, preparation, and communication with markets?
