Help Support Students Connect with Farm to School Programming in Tillamook County
Over the past year, we have significantly expanded our Farm to School educational program at schools throughout Tillamook County. We are reaching hundreds of new students and providing exciting new Farm to School projects, such as farm field trips and classroom visits from farmers, a School to Market entrepreneurship program, and tastings of local produce for over a thousand students through regular Tasting Tables in multiple schools. But we need your help to raise at least $5,000 in local community funding to continue to provide these programs during the 2017-18 school year.
Are you willing to make a donation today? Every dollar will go toward bringing Farm to School lessons and activities to children in Tillamook County. With your support, we can make our kids healthier and happier, create experiences for them they will remember all their lives, and strengthen our local farm economy.
