Our network of farmers markets, Youthmarkets, Fresh Food Box pick-ups, and Greenmarket Co. ensures that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, healthiest local food.
Seed to Plate is an interdisciplinary, standards-aligned 5th & 6th grade program that teaches New York City students about our food system. Designed in collaboration with the Laurie M. Tisch Center for Food, Education & Policy at Teachers College Columbia University, Seed to Plate introduces students to why healthful, mindful eating is important for their health, the environment, and the community that surrounds them.
Seed to Plate explores agriculture, nutrition, and cooking through field trips to a Greenmarket, urban farms, and classroom visits from farmers and chefs, film viewings, local food tastings and hands-on prep of delicious, diverse, and healthy food grown in or near New York City.
Seed to Plate can be taught in social studies, science, health, or English classes to tell the story of local food, inspiring our future generation of environmental stewards.
Since the spring of 2012, Seed to Plate has been taught in 17 schools and 85+ classrooms of 5th and 6th graders, reaching over 2000 New York City students.
