Sharing the Fruits (and Veggies) of our Labor…From Farm to Fork
October 15 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pmFREE
Register for a Saturday adventure at the rolling farmland of historical Nourse Farm in Westborough. We’ll offer a chance to discover fun ways to explore the past, celebrate the present, and plan for the future as we share the fruits (and veggies) or our labor. As you might imagine, Nourse Farm provides a large scope for learning given its age (300 years!) and family contributions to the business (members of the 8th, 9th, and 10th generations work there!)
Tasting the harvest from a school garden is a popular way to encourage students (& their families) to try new foods, especially vegetables. As such, MAC will offer hands-on participatory opportunities and resources for ways teachers and students (& their families) can better connect agriculture, food, and nutrition. Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist (& 9th generation family member), Catherine Nourse runs Veg Out @ Nourse Farm –(a plant-forward food truck) and will be on hand to share her perspectives as an educator and foodie. Her use of agricultural and nutritional science to create menu items and education activities ensures that when you’re better connected to your food, you’re more inclined to eat ( and enjoy it. We believe that this farm-to-fender experience will amplify your own appreciation of locally grown produce and provide ideas to boost student, family, (even school) nutrition.
Dress appropriately for the weather (warm jackets & walking shoes) as we explore the farm’s Story Walk and self-guided Historical Hike. There is a tent available so the workshop will be held rain or shine on Saturday, October 15.
Breakfast snack & VERY locally sourced lunch will be served.
10 PDP’s may be earned at this workshop.
