4. Affiliate School:

  • Strive to work with at least 6 classes to incorporate weekly garden classes into their schedule. CTC leads these classes and focuses on the next generation science standards and STEM.
  • Partner with the school to host special events such as Strawberry & Salads Greens week where students are exposed to local, fresh strawberries and different greens.
  • Host weekly markets where we sell produce from the garden, and our other locations through out the city. A portion of the proceeds goes back into the school garden.
  • Conduct a Community Supported Agriculture Program which co-insides with our markets.
  • Includes general maintenance including weeding, harvesting and more. 

If you would like to be considered an CTC affiliate school, please tell us more here.
