Agricultural Projects for K-8 Classrooms
Updated: Aug 3, 2020
With all of the uncertainty surrounding the upcoming academic school year, teachers must be creative in their curriculums, especially with “social distancing” requirements in place. What better way to add fun and uniqueness to the classroom than with an outdoor agricultural project?
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.
