TBAISD Farm to School

In 2017, Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District (TBAISD) piloted the TBAISD Farm to School program to provide school specific Farm to School support and capacity-building to select elementary schools within Northwest Michigan.

MUSE School

"Inspiring and Preparing Young People to Live Consciously with Themselves, One Another, and the Planet."

Learning is Alive: We pursue education fearlessly, knowing that children are naturally “switched-on” when they are learning about something they love. We strive to cultivate and sustain that in-the-moment exuberance.

San Mateo Park Elementary School

Our garden is an educational, edible, student-driven garden. Park is a Title I school; with 70% of our families considered socioeconomically disadvantaged. Our mission is to introduce new organic food to our students; many live in food deserts within San Mateo. Our garden motto is “we love dirt and dirt is good”. Many  students here have never seen strawberries grow on the vine nor picked tomatoes, squash, or tomatillos.

San Diego Jewish Academy

At San Diego Jewish Academy our mission is to challenge minds, inspire purpose and explore possibilities. Levana's Garden is a 1/4 acre site that includes native plants, the seven species of trees from the Old Testament, 11 raised vegetable beds, 1 large in ground bed and a multitude of orchard trees. We also recently have added a flock of 4 hens to the garden. We have a school cafeteria that makes the majority of it's lunches from scratch, and is able to use the fresh ingredients from our garden.

Local food cycling school

We are a non-profit organization to promote the enjoyment of a lifestyle that aims to establish resource recycling in the local community. Our activities include, among others teaching how to recycle our kitchen garbage and other waste generated from our yards that is, how to turn them into compost and communicating the joy of composting. By making use of compost we produced or collected in neiboring areas, we grow vegetables in community gardens. 

We focus on following 5 issues for a sustainable lifestyle in community you live.

Lake County International Charter

The mission of Lake County International Charter School is to educate students to be literate, knowledgeable, principled local, national, and global citizens. Students participate in an enriched and nurturing learning environment that honors the whole child - emotionally, creatively, physically, socially and culturally. LCICS students become competent and self-motivated individuals with  a commitment to life-long learning that enables them to reach their full potentials.

Our core values which lead our work are human dignity, solidarity, subsidiarity and option for the vulnerable. Our principles which guide our work are collaboration, excellence, education and stewardship.

Farm Shop Educational Centre

Hello! As a farming family we have always had a passion to supply the public with healthy, local fruit and vegetables as well as educate people on healthy eating. Having struggled to encourage local councils we work with to support us in our drive to educate children and their parents we have decided to create a program ourselves. Through our expansion of our business with a Farm Shop and Restaurant we want to create an educational space for children to learn about farming, healthy eating and cooking.

Springhill Garden

Our program is really in the beginning stages at I am looking to expand and build the program by implementing structure and systems that will create a sustainable means for the garden to continue through the changing personnel that a public school can bring. I am a former sous chef and line cook at Chez Panisse, I left 5 years ago to be at home with my two daughters. My eldest is now in kindergarten at the local school and the garden program is in desperate need of help, I want to be that help.
