EduCulture partners with all three 1st grade teachers at Ordway Elementary to help design a program that will best suit their students’ interests. Teachers choose a plant pathway to follow throughout the year on both Suyematsu and Morales master farms.
Field classes include seasonal lessons at the strawberry bed at Suyematsu Farm; in the fall, preparing the plants for the winter, and helping to maintain the beds and harvest in the late spring and summer. The students also help plant and harvest potatoes and kale.
EduCulture is also working with Ordway staff and volunteers to assist them in expanding their new school garden.
