The New Generation Educataional (coming soon) will engage students in cultivating, tending and selling vibrant, nutritious foods to schools. The two-acre farm will serve as an outdoor classroom to teach science, math, literacy, and social skills through gardening and culinary activities. This learning lab will build on each student’s knowledge base from year to year, culminating in a generation fully equipped to envision and create an equitable, local, sustainable food system from seed to plate. This farm will work in collaboration with Food Love farm to meet the demand for farm education in Nevada County.
