Farm-to-school connection promotes health and learning

Throughout Massachusetts, educators are working to help students lead healthy lives by promoting locally grown food and using agriculture in their classroom activities. Jessica Ouimet, who teaches in West Springfield and has a farm in Westfield, is pictured working with children in the garden at the Coburn Elementary School.

Meanwhile, more and more MTA members — including Attleboro teacher Jeanne Dyer, who presented information on the campaign for adequate revenues at a recent meeting of local presidents — are playing active roles in informing colleagues and conducting training.
