Food Safety for School + Community Gardens

School gardeners digging in at the Grow Zone at Willow Springs Elementary School.

Recognizing that there has been little food safety information out there that directly references gardens (rather than farms), a team from NC State University, University of North Carolina and North Carolina Cooperative Extension visited gardens in five North Carolina counties last summer. They listened to the conerns of thosse in gardens and chatted with garden managers and then matched their input with scientifid data to produce a new “best practices” document, Food Safety for School + Community Gardens.

This best practices document covers  watering, composting, planting, soil, volunteer management, pests, animals, and more. AHA has placed this resource on our Community Garden resources page and also its School Gardens page.
