Chef Ian Knauer from The Farm Cooking School will prepare a delicious, locally sourced dinner at with beautiful produce from Roots to River Farm in support of Learning Through Gardening school garden programs.
The New Jersey Agricultural Society's Learning Through Gardening program provides grants to New Jersey pre-school and elementary schools to build vegetable gardens and trains teachers to use the gardens as outdoor classrooms. Educators learn how to teach their core curriculum in a garden setting, including lessons in science, math, social studies, and language arts. The program seeks to teach children where their food comes from, how it grows, and to encourage them to regularly eat more fresh fruits and vegetables by giving them the opportunity to eat the vegetables they have grown at school.
