Growing Awareness for Farm to School
Mark your calendars for October 18th and 19th, 2013 in Everybody's Home Town, Prescott, Arizona. Our inaugural event will celebrate National Farm to School Month while informing parents, educators, administrators, businesses and local and state officials through the engagement of an experiential education field day and 'Cultural Connections through Local Food' fundraising event.
Saturday educational field day will include a visit to the Prescott Farmers Market, a tour of Mortimer Family Farm in Dewey, Chino Valley Farms in Chino Valley and a luncheon buffet with Q & A Farm to School Panel. This comprehensive group of speakers are instrumental in their own Southwest communities, developing and enhancing Farm to School programs. The panel will also include individuals working in our local school districts and Health Department to address food safety issues. They offer us valuable information to guide our initiative in the planning and implementation for Yavapai County.
