Whatcom Farm Circle
The Whatcom Farm Circle is an annual field trip hosted in the fall by Whatcom Family Farmers and the Whatcom County agriculture community for 3rd grade students. At this event, students learn about local food, meet real farmers, and explore the science behind agriculture.
Our objectives are to create a meaningful agriculture education experience for students, parents, and teachers of Whatcom County by:
- Providing a chance to meet real Whatcom farm families and learn about what they do.
- Providing an overview of local food production, targeting age-appropriate life science and environmental science curriculum.
- Providing an overview of the importance of farmland to our county, local environment, economy, and the overall health of our planet.
- Providing samples of healthy, locally-produced food and nutritional information.
