Celebrating relationships between farms and schools

October is National Farm To School Month.  Check back every Monday of the month for a post about how to incorporate agricultural themes into the classroom.  Today is the last post in this series. 

On Thursday, I had the privilege of going to Mintonye Elementary School in Tippecanoe County to see how the school celebrated Farm to School, and to learn more about Farm to School efforts throughout Indiana.  ISDA is helping lead the efforts alongside Purdue University, the department of education, the department of health and Indiana schools.

WLFI of Lafayette, Hoosier Ag Today and AgriNews all visited.  You can see some of the stories here and here.

I also took quite a few pictures documenting the day.  I enjoyed sampling the cheese from Fair Oaks and bread from Great Harvest, and hearing about the projects students worked on all month.

Did your school do anything special to celebrate Farm to School month?
