Delta County Schools Farm to School Environmental Educator
Farm to School (F2S) AmeriCorps Members are part of a team that
works with Delta County Farm to School staff and volunteers to
connect youth to the earth, to their food, and to the community as
part of our district-wide Farm to School program, bridging gaps
that enable partner organizations to be more efficient and
effective at providing nutrition, health, and garden-based
environmental education to rural youth. F2S Members engage youth
and community members to build, maintain, and expand school gardens
through a start-to-finish growing season. Programs include farm
field trips, guest visits, summer camps, garden clubs, and youth
farmers markets. Members provide outreach and engagement at
community events to promote Farm to School and the organization's
programs and mission. Members gain exposure to organic agriculture,
curriculum development, program planning, volunteer engagement, and
participate in ongoing professional development. Further help on
