Free Money Friday—Agricultural Projects for K-8 Classrooms
With all of the uncertainty surrounding the upcoming academic school year, our teachers are having to get creative with how they re-create and structure their curriculums and classrooms, especially with the “social distancing” requirements in place. What a better to add some uniqueness to the classrooms than with adding agricultural projects to the curriculum!
The Agricultural Classroom Projects grant is sponsored by the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom (CFAITC) and California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) Foundation. The grant is up to $1,000 to USA K-8 teachers to incorporate agricultural projects into the classroom curriculum. Some projects include, but are not limited to, setting up a compost system for the classroom, planting an educational garden, and creating worm bins. All classroom projects must follow organic production and handling standards from the National Organic Program. The deadline is August 31, 2020.
