Agricultural Arts at Brooksville Elementary School

Agricultural Arts is an exciting new program at Brooksville Elementary School in which all students get one period a week of gardening & culinary education. The class is designed to teach gardening and cooking skills through hands-on learning, gives students a role in cultivating our school garden, and explores a range of subjects through an agricultural/environmental lens. We let the seasons and the natural world guide our learning. The curriculum has been built from scratch based on available human and ecological resources in our community and student inquiry and interest.

Curriculum, Culture, and Cuisine

This program guides K-12 teachers in developing  curriculum to examine how the science, culture, and socioeconomics of food influences educational understandings and practices in the school environment. Of particular focus will be the students' scientific inquiry into their local food science contexts and the implications for academic achievement, physical health and social justice. Topics will include indigenous food sources and issues of access, correlation of STEM content standards to cultural food practices, and personalized health and nutrition advocacy.
