20-21 S. Whidbey Schools CAFE PROJECT
Since 2014, the South Whidbey Island School District has been growing fresh vegetables using organic practices integrated with garden-based curriculum linked to Common Core and Next Gen Science standards. The program is now a specialist garden science class taught to 650 students K-6 at the S. Whidbey Elementary School and 50 students in garden elective and CTE Agriculture at the SW High School. The students are the farmers, and school farm-grown produce is delivered to cafeteria for the school lunches, used in culinary lessons, eaten on the spot at the farm by the students, and used in school events. School farm produce is also distributed to two non-profits: Whidbey Island Nourishes for K-4 snacks and weekend backpacks, and to Readiness to Learn for after-school and summer programs. Our members will work closely with our farm team and certified farm teacher to provide hands on healthy living options as they support our students in hands on learning, farming, cooking and healthy eating! Our members will include supporting our certified farm teacher and farm manager in providing education to k-6 students in growing vegetables and fruit in our school farm, as well as in our culinary program. We will hold interviews in May of 2020 and our program will begin on September 1, 2020.
