Farm to Fair will provide hands on programming for youth from November 2018 through August 2019. We will begin with a 2 day Program: Fed by Farms - research based curriculum from Iowa State University to introduce youth across the county to gardening production and animal production. A Junior Master Gardeners club will then be established to meet monthly with trained Master Gardeners. Each 4H club in Jones County (13 total clubs) will be provided garden boxes and supplies to plant a club garden box on the Jones County Fairgrounds. Clubs will have the opportunity to then decide how to share the food harvested with local organizations. 4 workshops are planned to provide further hands on education, access to speakers from the industry. There will be a bus trip to Iowa State University for youth in the county - this trip will provide access to University experts, hands on learning, and inspiration for future careers and opportunities. The project will close during the 2019 County and State Fairs. At the Jones County fair gardens will be showcased to the public and a Farm to Fair picnic will be held for the public. During the picnic youth will showcase demonstrations, presentations, and displays about the areas covered through the year. In addition each club will participate in the Club Vegetable Platter challenge where they will showcase and be judged on their garden produce. The project will finish out with a trip to the Iowa State Fair where clubs and individuals will enter their vegetables for State Fair judging and participate in Horticulture related programming.

We will start by introducing 4th-6th grade students to sustainable options which can be used in lieu of plastic and styrofoam products. NOTE: Many of these students have gone through the Kids for Positive Change program and are familiar with skipping the straw, using reusable straws, bags and bottles. We also will work with a community restaurant owner who actively composts, and teach students about the benefits of composting. We'd like to set up a composting station at school and continue our school recycling program. We will have students research sustainable and compostable products, like utensils made from corn and cups made from wheat and provide them with materials to "build" their own compostable products. A main focus will be raising awareness about plastic bag pollution and promoting the use of reusable bags. Much like our Classroom-Community Action Assignment: "The Last Plastic Straw Ashtabula Campaign," we will have students launch a similar campaign about plastic bags. Students will present at Ashtabula City Council and Board of Education meeting about zero waste and how to move toward making Ashtabula Area City Schools a Zero Waste / Sustainable School System!

BrainPower's goal is to help reduce hunger among the neediest of students in District 191.

I have the support of Dr. King, Country Trails principle and my third grade teacher Mrs. Robinson. Our club will meet once a month. Anyone in the school can join in if they would like. We will cover all areas of science. We will also do things that will benefit the local community. Examples of this would be an earth day clean up, as well as growing a vegetable garden, and donating the food to a local food pantry.

Student participants will be requested to bring their parents to the after school program when available. The school will be giving access to resources to continue to cultivate their organic garden.

We will educate teachers and staff about the importance of composting. We will share and distribute composting buckets to each classroom. We will designate a specific place in the garden for a compost pile and build the appropriate container.
