(09/29/20) BATON ROUGE, La. — The LSU AgCenter’s Louisiana Farm to School Program has launched Seeds to Success, a project offering free educational resources on agriculture and nutrition.
“A collaborative effort of the LSU AgCenter and the Louisiana Department of Education, Seeds to Success is designed to help students, parents and teachers have fun gardening at their homes and schools,” said Johannah Frelier, Farm to School Program manager.
The materials are available online at www.seedstosuccess.com. They include growing guides for a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, lesson plans and activities tied to Louisiana curriculum standards, along with information on careers in agriculture, food and related fields.
Users can create an account on the website to develop personalized curricula and to add places, events and organizations to community resource pages. Louisiana teachers can also use their accounts to request free seed packets, windowsill grow boxes and classroom container gardens in 2021.
Seeds to Success has also created a Facebook group for Louisiana gardeners and teachers to connect and engage in an open, interactive forum.
“They’ll be able to ask and answer gardening questions, exchange tips on lesson plans and activities, share valuable resources, favorite recipes and much more,” Frelier said.
