During our pilot years, Vermont FEED had the opportunity to work with educators around the state developing food, farm, and nutrition curriculum units and experiential Farm to School lessons. Students gained new sets of skills and knowledge. Teachers came to understand the standards and assessments in a more practical way. Parents and community members were excited that food issues were being addressed in the classroom, cafeteria, and community. However, the challenge we continually faced from schools and teachers was just how time consuming and laborious it was to create and implement new Farm to School units. This guide is our answer to that challenge. Through our partnerships with the schools and teachers we’ve worked with over the past 10 years, we’ve identified seven units spanning grades K–12 to share with educators in Vermont and beyond.
