Eagle Mountain Elementary recently hosted the Arkansas Farm to You program from the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Office in Little Rock.
The program is a traveling interactive adventure for students, following food from the farm to the market and through the body. It explores the relationships between Arkansas agriculture, food, nutrition, and health and is designed to involve kindergarten through 6th grade students in learning how foods from the farm are used by their bodies for good health, the U of A noted on their website.
