We grow, we eat! at Wilbanks Middle School

We grow, we eat! at Wilbanks Middle School

Farm to School (F2S) in Northeast Georgia seeks volunteers to serve during the coming school year as it expands into North Habersham Middle School in Clarkesville and South Habersham Middle School in Cornelia, and continues at Hilliard A. Wilbanks Middle School in Demorest.
Volunteer training is scheduled for Wednesday, August 13 at Wilbanks Middle School from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM. A light, locally grown lunch will be served.
Volunteers are needed in two areas of F2S. One is to staff taste tests at the middle schools and the other is to assist with the raised-bed gardens at each school.
Taste test volunteers need to be available at least one time during the year between 11:00 AM and 1:30 PM. Staffing a taste test is an opportunity to work with other F2S volunteers, local farmers and chefs while witnessing students experience new food. Duties may include serving Fresh Farm Products or taste test samples, collecting students’ opinions, or creating taste test artwork and voting regimens.
Garden volunteers will work with students, teachers and Food Corps service members to support students growing, harvesting and eating locally grown vegetables. Duties will involve working with students in the planting and care of the garden.
Farm to School volunteers must pass a background check.
To sign-up for the F2S volunteer training, please contact Jennie Inglis, 706-348-754, jringlis60@gmail.com.
