Youth Garden Education

Since 2016, the FSP has been a host site for a FoodCorps garden education Service Member, and offers students at Indian Head Start preschool and Bishop Elementary School lessons promoting healthy eating habits and nutrition through cooking and gardening.

 

Elders Education

In partnership with the Tribal Elder’s Program, FSP prepares weekly produce boxes from June through October for Tribal Elder community members to take home. Tea Tuesdays, which explore uses of garden herbs and native plants, are held during the spring and summer growing season, and include an introduction to herb uses and herbal tea tasting. Youth-Elder traditional food-systems field trips are also offered.

 

Family Educational Events

In addition to education for youth via FoodCorps, FSP provides family-oriented education on a rotating basis, such as Family Cook Nights at Head Start which involve family members and Head Start staff, and learning activities at the Bishop Indian Education Center.
