GA Organics State-Wide Competition- “Make Room for Legumes”
Georgia Organics coordinates a statewide campaign to teach students about the importance of growing and eating a variety of vegetables.
Farm-to-School FCCLA competition became a project-based learning experience at Lovinggood Middle School. The 8th-grade student team wrote a proposal, created a mascot, commercials, banners, taste tests and coordinated a school-wide “Legume Day” to generate excitement. They worked side-by-side with the Cafeteria staff, Media Center, the Physical Education department, a Partner in Education, and our Special Education classrooms. Lovinggood students have participated in the Farm-to-School competition for three years and have earned their third win!
