Good School Food, our primary program, is a food-based education model rooted in academic standards. Through hands-on, experiential lessons at our Teaching Farms, pre-K–12 students use food, farming, and the culinary arts as a foundation for academic exploration.
Jones Valley Teaching Farm uses the power of growing food to transform and improve a young person’s pre-K-12 educational experience. We build vibrant, student-centered Teaching Farms on school campuses to provide an environment where young people can learn, create and explore, and grow a healthy future for themselves and their community.
Our vision is for all students to have a transformative educational experience using food, farming, and the culinary arts as a foundation for learning.
Jones Valley Teaching Farm begins and ends with its people.
Jones Valley Teaching Farm is supported by a Board of Directors with deep roots in Birmingham. We rely on their leadership and guidance as we grow and refine our work.
Our partners share the belief that hands-on, food-based education should be an integral part of a child’s pre-K–12th grade educational experience.
