I’m excited to be in Austin, Texas for the National Farm to Cafeteria Conference this week!
Today, we’re visiting Farm to School programs throughout the city.
First stop – S.F. Austin High School. School garden led by the Spanish teacher and a Garden Club that meets weekly before school. 8 teachers participate in their CSA and receive produce from the garden weekly for $30/season.
Next Stop – Manor High School. Culinary Arts program that teaches food literacy and prepares students for food service careers.
Next stop – Travis High School. Extensive culinary arts program, outdoor classroom, and courtyard garden with fish pond and worm composting!
