Building Healthier Children

The SC School Gardens Program is an excellent tool for educating children on the many componates of agriculture.  Students across the state are learning the process of how their food is grown and the importance of buying and eating local.  All students are familiarizing themselves with the Certified SC logo and brand.  The outcome of this program has been extremely positive and will only conitunue to grow.  The Times and Democrates in Orangeburg, SC released an article that proves that educational programs in agriculture are a great success in South Carolina.

This article also introduces a new program sponsored by the SC State Fair called "From Field to Fair." This is an excellent tool to use and offers interactive programs for children.  Make sure to visit their website for more information.
