Eat What You Grow: A School Garden Food Safety Manual for Chicago Public Schools
Growing food on your green schoolyard? Follow these protocols for safe and healthy harvest and food service.
School gardens on green schoolyards can encourage healthy eating habits, directly connect students to their food, and provide opportunities for hands-on learning in math, science, literacy, creative arts and more. In collaboration with Academy for Global Citizenship, The Chicago Botanic Garden, and Chicago Public Schools, Family Farmed produced this manual for garden operators so that the food grown can be served in the cafeteria; it includes a comprehensive list of required food safety protocols, useable forms and signage.
