Farm Studio 2015: Food & Community

Farm Studio is our summer project-based learning program, hosted at our downtown farm. Last month twenty middle school students from Birmingham City Schools completed Farm Studio 2015: Food & Community. Students spent two weeks with us on the farm, exploring ideas around food & community and designing and building tables as their final projects.

 

A key element of Farm Studio is healthy food. For lunches our local partners, Nourish Foods (week 1) and WE Community Garden (week 2), used our farm‘s summer produce to prepare delicious and nutritious meals for the students.

 

At the end of the two week program, each group of students presented their work to visiting teachers and family members. We’re already looking forward to next year!
