Farm to You Visits Local School
The Arkansas Farm to You is a 40-foot enclosed walk-through exhibit and has nine stations. Small groups of students begin the educational, interactive experience at the Arkansas Plate Farm where they learn that food comes from farms. The second station is called the market, where students learn about the transportation, processing and packaging of food from the farm to the market. The third station is the Health Cafe where students learn to pick and choose a variety of foods for a healthy and balanced diet. From here the students will follow food through the digestive system, the muscles, bones and skin. At each station, volunteers use a written script with a specific message for the station. A total of 400 students participated!
