Youth Nutrition Education
Through a partnership with the University of Missouri Extension, grade 1-8 classes can add on FREE nutrition training to their field trip! The Extension’s ‘Eating from the Garden’ program combines nutrition and gardening in lessons that incorporate organically grown produce from the farm to increase consumption of fruits and vegetables, expand gardening knowledge, and promote healthier food choices and physical activity.
Educators are very experienced in gardening with youth, we can't recommend this program enough! If you’d like to learn more please make note of it in the form below.
Group tours and field trips last up to 60 minutes, which includes ample time for questions. A brief overview of Urban Harvest STL and the history of the FOOD ROOF Farm will be shared, followed by a farm walk with in depth explanations of each component of the farm, from hydroponic towers to the agricultural green roof system, and chickens to an edible wall.
Please note that the rooftop is only accessible by two flights of stairs, once you make the short climb to the roof you will not be disappointed. We look forward to welcoming you to the farm!
