The Center for Rural Culture sponsors the Byrd Elementary School Program "From Our Hand to Yours." This is a year long, hands on program designed...
...to provide children with an understanding of the planting process from start to finish (Farm to Table)
(this goal in particular ties into academic teaching for the SOLS)
...to teach students about sustainability
...to make a connection within the community
...by way of planting and maintaining the school garden, field trips to farms and the food bank, and culminating with an overnight at Westview on the James.
