KC Farm School at Gibbs Road is a nonprofit organization on a 14-acre urban farm in Kansas City, Kansas.
With support from a $4,000 NCR-SARE Youth Educator grant, KC Farm School developed ‘Lessons To Go’ to bring sustainable agriculture education and food sovereignty practices to local youth aged 4-18. They wanted to provide additional lessons for teachers to engage students when they cannot visit the farm.
With their "Lessons to Go" youth can learn about sustainable and regenerative ag practices. Each of their lessons includes examples of classroom activities as well as on-farm activities that can enhance the learning experience.
- Lessons to Go: Diversity in Farming
- Lessons to Go: The Farm as an Ecosystem
- Lessons to Go: Farm to Market
- Lessons to Go: Global Farming
They also created a series of four videos to accompany their Lessons to Go.
