The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) would like to extend a special invitation to an event celebrating the District’s school garden program and farm to school program. On October 15th-20th, 2012, OSSE, in partnership with the DC Farm to School Network at DC Greens, Whole Foods, and the DC Environmental Education Consortium Schoolyard Greening Committee, will host the District’s first annual Growing Healthy Schools Week. The week, dedicated to celebrating seasonal foods in school meals and engaging students in the farm to table process, coincides with National School Lunch Week and will feature chef demonstrations, student field trips to regional farms, and an interactive opening event on October 15th.
