Farming The Future’s 3-5 curriculum offerings provide the following benefits:
Farming the Future believes that agriculture is one of the most truly enriching fields for learning. Seeing plants grow from seed to their edible end product is a wonderful and empowering experience for students. Agriculture teaches science by connecting with chemistry, physics, biology and engineering in units that go far beyond just planting seeds.
School gardens have been proven to affect change in a wide variety of fields including overall student health. Integrating gardens with core STEM concepts and comprehensive lessons has the potential to improve both academic achievement and social emotional learning. Studies have shown that including gardens in the learning environment supports:
The Tabletop Learning Laboratory provides students an opportunity to grow microgreens at their tables. The growing process includes experimental designs that will allow them to experiment with energy, how plants and animals are alike and different, food webs, and many other topics. The unit covers 23 NGSS standards in physical science, life science, and engineering.
The Raised Garden program is designed to get learners growing outside and in the classroom. Integrating 16 NGSS standards with the STEM enrichment curriculum and everything you need to grow a successful school garden in a compact space. Bring the Farm to School connection onto your campus. Turn any 10’ x 10’ space into a growing outdoor classroom as a standalone garden or as part of a larger existing school garden.
The Grow Bag Labs give students the opportunity to grow a variety of sets of plants that will end up as a product that the student can enjoy. Choose between the salsa, pesto, or tea garden grow bags and receive the materials needed to learn agriculture while growing to enjoy these edible treats. Choose the pollinator grow bag and bring colorful insects into your garden or right outside the door.
Welcome to the wonderful world of growing your own delicious, nutritious, and beautiful microgreens. Growing microgreen is a great way to add extra flavor as well as vitamins and minerals to your meals. Students will love growing them too as they learn the basic principles of agriculture in small indoor gardens that will yield delicious and nutritious crops.
