OCA Features

The OCA Farm To Table Program: Mr. Chris Moon from Our Children’s Academy has developed a Farm to Table Program which was recently adopted by the Lake Wales Breakfast Rotary. Our Farm to Table Program is an outdoor learning center that is used as a tool to teach science, math and life skills. Students participate in every aspect of gardening including preparation of the soil, planting, care taking and harvesting the fruits and vegetables. After the harvest, students package the fruits and vegetables to be sold at the OCA’s Farmers Market. At the market, students practice employability skills such as customer service and math for totaling orders and making change. The students in Mr. Moon’s class are so excited to work in the garden and learn these skills in such a fun, hands on way.
