Education is part of what the Pennsylvania Farm Show is all about, and students can still think about agriculture long after the show is over.
That’s because of the Pennsylvania Farm to School Network. It teaches kids that their food doesn’t just come from grocery stores; there’s an entire industry behind it and an important industry at that.
Agriculture gets into the academic curriculum and also becomes food for thought.
“It’s a holistic approach where there is education in the classroom, but they’re also eating Pennsylvania-grown produce on the cafeteria tray,” said Kelsey Porter, of the Pennsylvania Farm to School Network.
