Growing the Next Generation of Urban Farmers

Arlington Friends of Urban Agriculture invites you to our next public meeting at Ashlawn Elementary School (5850 8th Road N, Arlington) on Thursday, April 11th, 6:30-8:30pm.

The theme of the event is “Growing the Next Generation of Urban Farmers”, an in-depth discussion on future urban farmers in the area and how children, students, families, teachers, schools, PTAs, and communities can increase local food production and consumption.

We will have panelists leading a discussion on student involvement, nutrition, and comprehensive curriculum development. We will also have hands-on activities for children and young families.
