Farming The Future’s high school curriculum options 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.
Agriculture is one of the oldest labors of humanity and is always ripe for innovation and discovery. We believe that teaching students the basics of growing and business skills can provide them with insight and opportunities in many careers they may not know exist.
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:
Farming The Future’s DLP is a flagship program, originally geared towards middle schoolers, consisting of a digital platform for an entire year’s curriculum. It can be used to remediate STEM concepts for high school students who have struggled to understand these in the traditional setting. The curriculum includes biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, and earth/space science all connected to agriculture through activities and experiments that can be done in the classroom or at home with all student materials included. The DLP gives online access for students, teachers & administrators to lessons created by world class experts and educators. Contains weekly assessments and support for teachers including digital gradebook and online tech support. Contains multiple optional modifications for a variety of learning difficulties.
The Tabletop Learning Laboratory provides students an opportunity to grow microgreens at their tables in the classroom or at home. The included activities allows students to experiment on energy, chemical and physical changes, and many other topics. The unit covers twelve NGSS standards in physical science, chemistry, life science, and engineering.
The Raised Garden program is designed to get learners growing outside and in the classroom. Integrating nine 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 various different sets of plants that will end up as a product that the student can enjoy. Choose between the salsa, pesto, or tea grow bags to have 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 with high market value.
