Project EEASY - Food Forest Program
- Program will be held at your school
YEA's Project EEASY is a 3-year program offered to multiple grade levels. The lessons taught each year will build upon the previous year's classes and include grade-appropriate education standards. This project helps you to teach and engage your students in the Food Forest while creating a sense of ownership and stewardship and provides a deeper understanding of how global stewardship starts locally. YEA will come to your school and facilitate one Free in-house, grade level appropriate program, with a follow-up Eco-action. Each program reinforces grade level science standards and links lessons to the Food Forest. Eco-actions support the Food Forest by engaging students in hands-on activities. The lead teacher at each school should coordinate with school staff and choose a date for each grade level. Once a date is picked, a sign-up form will be sent to the lead teacher to send to each participating teacher, each of which will need to complete the form. YEA can facilitate up to 5 (6 for middle school) classes of the same grade level each day.
