Our K/1 Friday field trips are bringing the curriculum and learning standards to life in the minds and hearts of our students as we adventure to local farms in Central Oregon during our Storyline. Some children have little or no knowledge about where their food comes from. Visiting farms is one of the most tangible ways to reconnect children and youth with agriculture, coaching a new generation's interactions with the food system. Visiting a farm can inspire young people to make healthier food choices that support local farm communities. Field trip visitors learn about the value of farming, experiencing first-hand the production of food from seed to table. Field trips to farms are also great places to bring our school subjects such as science, math, language arts and nutrition to life through engaging hands-on activities. And what's more, farms hosting educational programs can help generate revenue and forge stronger connections with our CACO community. The farm field trips have been making a big impression on our students and we have many more visits still to come!
