At the JK Community Farm, we are passionate about connecting students to their food and the farmers who grow it. Students are naturally curious and creative thinkers, and we hope to help develop a solid foundation for understanding the natural world, nutrition and agriculture. We believe that food education is the foundation building a lifelong commitment to food justice and empowering healthy eating.
The JK Community Farm offers educational field trips for students of all ages to explore the world outside of their classroom. They begin to understand the connection between healthy soil, healthy plants and healthy people. Students gain confidence in making food choices. Students explore subjects such as soil, compost, edible plant parts, plant life cycles, pollination, pest control, the benefits of organic and chemical-free food, as well as nutrition. The JK Community Farm education programs can serve all ages and locales from Pre-K through 12, university students, and adults.

This season we will not be hosting our typical field trips – so we have decided to add a Self-Guided Field Trip Curriculum! The JK Community Farm will resume traditional field trips at a later date.
