Food, Farming, and Nutrition Curriculum Topics

As many of you know, creating, refining, and integrating new curriculum takes a lot of time and patience. As we work on developing new opportunities for professional academic development here in Windham County, we encourage you to explore the pages below.

Teachers across the country and state have created, piloted, and assessed a number of successful teaching units that incorporate farm and food education into the classroom, while meeting state standards. We hope these links will give you some ideas and inspiration as to what is possible!
