Farm to School Tour

The Farm to School program educates children about our food system through hands-on farming and garden programs. Recently a few Ashland Garden Club members attended a Farm to School outing which was held at Eagle Mill Farm, located on Eagle Mill Road in Ashland.

School children, grades K – 3, came with their teachers and a few parents, to gather, cook, and eat a “harvest meal”. Stations where set up for children learn about plant growth, composting, growing vegetables and healthy eating.
