In this workshop we will be developing a plan to bring sustainable and innovative farming methods into your classroom, connecting science, nutrition, and your local community. We will compare traditional farming methods, where farmers own and grow on several acres of land, and farming within a classroom, where hydroponic technologies can be used both as tools for science investigations, as well as a ‘place’ to grow food. Your students will take on the role of farmer-scientists, in a local, urban setting, and take ownership and agency in developing equitable access to choices in food.
