Celebrate Eat Local Month
For a listing of events, see the Farm Tour & Eat Local Month Guide online here. And please come visit the Whatcom F2S & Common Threads Farm booth at Bellewood Acres on Sept. 13 where we will be part of the Whatcom Farm Tour.
Welcome a New School Year!
This year, once again, all Whatcom County districts will be participating in the Harvest of the Month program, featuring an item that grows locally each month. New and revised Harvest of the Month education and outreach materials to be used by teachers, students, and parents are now available here.
Also, check when your district will be serving the Harvest item and encourage students to get lunch on those days to show support for more fresh and local food in school meals.
I Choose School Lunch
Students from Atlanta Public Schools highlight many good reasons to choose school lunch.
