Farm to school: A lesson in eating local
FAIRBANKS — At Effie Kokrine Charter School, locally grown food did not have to travel far for a wholesome “farm to school” experience.
Local harvest takes on a whole new meaning when the food is grown in a school’s back yard, harvested by students, prepared and served on site.
Spearheaded by the school’s FFA adviser Avril Wiers, the project was an offshoot of the summer science program. All season, 25 high school students worked with Wiers in the school garden, growing vegetables and earning science credits. The students read “Chew on This” and “Omnivore’s Dilemma” (young readers’ edition).
The Farm at Effie Kokrine also includes ducks, chickens and rabbits. A local Kiwanis Club helped the students build a barn for the animals this summer. Wiers teaches two four-week sessions of the summer program, with students spending half their time in the classroom and half in the garden. “It’s project-based learning,” she explained. Exploration is the theme, and one student took off with landscape design and another was drawn to beekeeping.Read full article
