Gardens & Farm Visits

Gardens & Farm Visits

Learning where our food comes from.

Harper Harvest and Birch Lane Harvest are pilot programs where school gardens sell produce to the school district central kitchen.

Farm Fresh Lunches

Farm Fresh Lunches

Promoting seasonal, local food in school meals.

Cafeteria Taste Testers let students sample fresh choices in lunch food.

Cooking Classes are provided for Student Nutrition Services staff.

Waste Reduction

Waste Reduction

Reducing solid waste through comprehensive waste management.

DavisRISE (Recycling Is Simply Elementary) is our unique, proven, recycling program that reduces waste at all school sites.

ALL Compost collection at elementary sites diverts all lunch food waste which means even greater waste reduction.

News and announcements

Welcome to the 2015-16 school year.  This summer DF2S collaborated with DJUSD staff to survey each school site for the biennual “Walkabout” event.  We also hosted the annual Custodian and Maintenance Employee Appreciation luncheon in August.

Keep checking back as we update the website and add new information about our gardening, nutrition and recycling programs.





Life Lab has a new resource to connect their “Growing Classroom” garden lessons with Common Core math and language arts standards and Next Generation Science Standards.  Check out their website to learn more.
