E.A.T. South hosts multiple education programs to reach a wide age and population demographic in order to access and impact our community in regards to learning the food system, growing your own food and ultimately, impacting food insecurity.
E.A.T. south offers an interactive field trip with Alabama state standards-based lesson plans and assessments. Throughout the approximate 1.5-2-hour field trip, students learn how each part of our farm works to sustain a healthy ecosystem. During their field trip, students gain hands-on experience with standards-based lessons and enjoy an amazing day outside on our beautiful farm. We share the data compiled from assessments with teachers to exemplify growth by students in their classes. In the 2017 we will feature two new exhibits: an interactive kitchen that allows for kids to cook produce they harvest on the farm and learn how to create nutritious meals and also a history garden which exemplifies the historical agriculture of Alabama from Native American farming to present day.
