Farm to School connects schools (K-12) with sustainable agriculture, food system and nutrition education, and helps create and maintain school gardens.

On the Farm brings a group of teens from the Boys and Girls Club of Portage County out to partner Atlas farms once weekly during the summer to experience life on small, diversified farms while helping out on a farm project like planting fruit trees, weeding vegetable beds, or feeding poultry and livestock.

WHY SUPPORT FARMSHED

We Believe: 1) Food should be grown in a sustainable manner 2) People should know how to buy, grow, harvest, preserve, and prepare local foods 3) The public should know local farmers 4) Farmers should know who eats their food
