Great Kids Farm is a living, working farm that educates children about healthy eating, organic farming and the natural sciences. We connect young people to the soil, plants, and animals that provide their food. We also teach them about sustainable farming practices used to generate this food in an environmentally friendly way.
Operated by Baltimore City Public Schools, the 33-acre Catonsville farm is integral to the school system’s efforts to improve school food and educate children and families about how nutritious foods form the foundation for healthy people and a sound environment.
Great Kids Farm supplies fresh produce to City schools’ nutrition education and cooking programs. We are seeking persons who will assist nutrition and culinary educators in the classroom in various city schools in and around Baltimore.
