Welcome Back to School!

We are so excited to welcome students back to school!


Jones Valley Teaching Farm has been hard at work this summer prepping all of our seven teaching farms for the 2017-2018 school year to start!  This school year, we will continue to collaborate with over 200 teachers on lessons in math, science, English Language Arts and social studies. Our Good School Food program will collectively impact over 4,500 PreK-12th grade students through these standards-based lessons, culinary classes, and after school programs.  We are grateful for our strong partnership with Birmingham City Schools and for the many, many local and national partners who make our work possible.  Here’s to providing every student with a transformative educational experience!
