On South Whidbey Island in the state of Washington, a school farm involves children from kindergarten through high school in every phase of raising organic vegetables as part of their school experience. Supported by local non-profits, community volunteers, and the school district, it shows that a garden can be a valuable addition to a school curriculum, while encouraging children to eat healthy food. The school farm sells local, organic produce to the school cafeterias and also supplies the local food bank and community nutrition programs with fresh organic produce throughout the growing season. 
"Cultivating Kids so beautifully captures the excitement and joy that farm to school brings to kids, educators, and community members. Show this film to anyone you want to convert into a lifetime farm to school supporter!" - Anupama Joshi, Executive Director and Co-Founder, National Farm to School Network
