The Meet Your Farmer program connects regional farmers and Greenmarket staff with New York City students, grades 2-12. Designed to compliment the Greenmarket School Tours. Meet Your Farmer classroom visits enable students to engage with the people who grow, raise and produce food in a focused educational setting. During these visits, farmers discuss what a typical day in their life is like throughout the seasons, talk about the products they grow or raise on their farms and explain the role Greenmarket plays in supporting their efforts to provide their products to New York City residents.
Special thanks to Farmer Beth Linskey for sharing her talents with our students and for teaching them how our food gets from the farm to our kitchen table. For more information on GrowNYC, who sponsored the program, click here.
