Woodstock Union Middle High School

Farm-to-School has been an active group at WUHSMS since 2008.  Farm-to-School is a club open to both middle school and high school students.   The support team of Farm-to-School includes school staff members and community members. 

The goals of our club are to increase local food options being served in the cafeteria, to facilitate a working school garden, to compost, to build relationships between the school and the greater community, and to integrate food education through the disciplines. 

Our club's activities include (but are not limited to): visiting farms, composting, holding taste-tests, cooking, hosting local community meals, fundraising, participating in Woodstock’s Trek to Taste event, learning about food in the classroom, having food-related contests and gardening.
