Georgia Farm to Preschool




Farm to Preschool is a new initiative that grew out of the Farm to School movement and encompasses a wide range of programs and activities. It strives to encourage young children to like eating fresh fruits and vegetables while their preferences are still forming. It also encourages healthy choices in children throughout their lives by offering experiences with good nutrition and hands-on education through cooking and gardening. Farm to Preschool also improves access to healthy food at home and in the community.


Farm to Preschool Programs Include:

  • Edible School Gardens
  • Cooking with Kids
  • Taste Tests
  • Farm Field Trips
  • Nutrition Education
  • Involving Parents and the Community
