It’s market season! Truck Farms are visiting their local farmers markets and community gardens, in addition to schools, summer camps, and after-school programs, for outreach and education while gearing up for harvest.
In Spring 2011, the Truck Farm fleet expanded to include 25 trucks across the country. Since then our Truck Farmers have reached thousands of students at school programs and other venues, and educators say the Truck Farm visits encourage many students to get involved in school and community gardening programs. Keep it up!
We’re hatching plans to add 20 new trucks to the Truck Farm fleet across the country in 2012, and we’re working to expand our Truck Farmer toolkit. Interested in setting up or sponsoring a Truck Farm in your community? Download an info sheet and email [email protected]
