Alternative Roots Farm is once again partnering with the Budding Farmers Program for the 2014 season. Materials can be delivered directly with CSA and Farm Share deliveries, or for non-members pick up will be available at the Saturday New Ulm Farmers' Market (no purchase necessary). Our goal is to provide this great program to as many people as possible, regardless if you are a member or not.
This is a great program to consider for your children, grandchildren, day care kids, classroom and more!
The Budding Farmers program teaches children (Budding Farmers) about the fruits and vegetables we grow. It is perfect for Pre-K through Elementary aged children. For 8 weeks during the season, you will receive take home nutrition information, fun facts, growing guides, science projects, recipes, creative activities, and more with your CSA box, or Farm Share order. Each week features a new seasonal fruit or vegetable that is found in your box that week. The program also includes a “Fun Book” binder where weekly materials can be clipped in and organized and a kids-sized tote bag.
Cost is $48 for the season (just $6 a week!).
It’s never too early to teach your kids about healthy seasonal food- through Budding Farmers they will cook, grow, learn, taste, smell, feel, and get creative with the fruits and vegetables we grow just for you!
