Farm to School Program

Washburn School District Farm to School Program focuses on providing garden and nutrition education to PreK-8th grade students using project based learning in our garden.  Teachers use the garden to enhance Math, Science, Social Studies, Language and Arts education.  The overall vision of the Washburn Elementary and Middle School garden project is to provide greater access to and educate the public about locally grown food.  The food produced is utilized in the school cafeteria and in the Family and Consumer Sciences cooking classes.
