  • Farm to School

    Mushrooms are grown year-round in every geographic region of the United States, local to most districts.

    The mighty mushroom is ideal for hands-on demonstrations, classroom growing experiments, and tasty scratch-made meals that support your Farm to School Program! Our Farm to School toolkit provides ready to go materials for the classroom and cafeteria to promote local mushrooms and their environmental benefits.
