Tomatoes, Cucumbers, and Salad Tag: A Farmer Goes to School
Summers, William
Language Arts, v90 n4 p268-272 Mar 2013
Will Summers has been farming since 2007 when he interned for a small community-supported agriculture (CSA) farm in Austin, Texas. His agricultural experience since then has primarily been with nonprofit organizations where he has cultivated vegetables, kept chickens, milked goats, and introduced young people to the wonders of farming and gardening. In this article, he shares his story of working with teachers and students as he integrated good health and farming into K-12 curriculum as part of a "farm-at-school" program.
