School Gardens in the News

School garden and farm to school projects are great projects to promote through local news media.  Below are some recent news pieces on these topics.  Read them to find out what’s happening around the state and for ideas for your projects.  We encourage projects to reach out to media contacts so that communities can find out about the good work that is happening in our state!  Pay attention to which reporters are writing about these topics because they may want to write about these topics again.  Let us know when your project (or another) gets press – we’d love to include it here!  Email Leah Smith at l.smith@wvhub.org
