LOCAL FARM VISITS AND VIDEOS
Prior to school closures during Covid -19 CPS brought farmers into the classroom to educate students on where their foods comes from, discuss life and job opportunities on the farm, and engage younger students in agriculturally-related art activities.
During the summer of 2020, given school closures during the pandemic, two farms were interviewed on the farm and videos created to continue this education. In early March a new video will highlight additional job opportunities along the supply chain.
Below are the two summer on-farm videos, as well as the archive of farm visit videos from the 2019-20 school year. The first supply chain career video will be posted on March 1st. Enjoy!
