Farm Field Trip Resources

The Oregon Farm to School Network has created a Farm Field Trip Toolkit for Teachers (updated 5/21/18), which is a step-by-step guide for implementing successful farm field trips. The Toolkit also includes funding sources, recommended farms, evaluation tools, field trip activities, supplemental classroom lessons, and activities, visuals and handouts to educate kids about the important role of farmworkers in our food system.
