    “Farming and agriculutre can teach our students life skills.”

    “I have experience with raising chickens and have seen first hand the amazing bond that students can build the flock from incubation through all stages of life. Farming and agriculture can teach our students life skills. They love to be a part of something bigger.”

    Meagan Love, Special Education Teacher

    “I think is especially important for those living in cities [to raise chickens]…”

    I use them to tie into lessons – for example, we learned about the strength of arches by standing on eggs, or about levers by balancing the chickens on our arms. They’re great for soft skills too, and a fantastic way of getting kids involved with nature, climate change and where our food comes from, which I think is especially important for those living in cities who might otherwise not get the opportunity to engage with nature.

    “We have proven through surveys that the more nutrition education we do, and the more taste testing and sampling that we do, the more they will eat the fresh produce.”
