Why we do this:

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, and of course, biology in units that are more than just seed planting. Studies have shown that including gardens in the learning environment supports:

  • Increases in school engagement and positive attitudes about school and learning.
  • Improved knowledge, attitudes and behaviors regarding food literacy, nutrition, healthy behaviors, as well as fruit and vegetable consumption among learners.
  • Providing children with opportunities for social and emotional growth; improved life skills, self-esteem, social skills and behavior.

Unit Options:

Tabletop Learning Laboratory

The Tabletop Learning Laboratory provides students an opportunity to grow microgreens at their tables that will allow them to experiment on the needs of plants, the properties of light, natural diversity, and many other topics. The unit covers 15 NGSS standards in physical science, life science, and engineering.

Raised Garden Unit

The Raised Garden program is designed to get learners growing outside the classroom. Integrating 11 NGSS standards in a STEM enrichment curriculum with everything you need to grow a successful school garden in a compact space. Turn any 10’ x 10’ space into a growing outdoor classroom as a standalone garden or as part of a larger existing school garden.

Grow Bag Labs

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. Or choose the pollinator grow bag to be able to transfer these greens into the gardens and bring colorful insects into your garden.

Ultimate Microgreens Kit

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.
