ABSTRACT INFORMATION
'Connecting Our Youngest to the Table'

We will focus on how to incorporate farm connections into the everyday classroom curriculum of our youngest humans. Young children are natural explorers who are so curious about the world around them and thrive off of consistent supportive exposure to new topics. We will spend some time looking at a meal time and how we can add depth to the experience through hands on experiences that touch upon many fun learning possibilities.
