Nancy - Is it possible to print sources for these titles? We on the 
east coast will be hard pressed to track down the Sonoma Co Ag 
Literacy Project, and what not.

>Dear Stacy,
>Here a couple of guides I've found useful in our middle school program:
>Food for Thought:  Lessons from the Land (put out by Sonoma County
>Agricultural Literacy Project).  It's geared towards grades 3-6, but I found
>it useful for older grades as well.
>The Growing Classroom (Roberta Jaffe, Gary Appel, published by Addison
>Wesley).  Curriculum from LifeLab in Santa Cruz, the all-purpose,
>we-have-lessons-on-just-about-everything.  Aimed at K-6.
>French Fries and the Food System:  A year-round curriculum connecting youth
>with farming and food (Sara Coblyn, a publication of the Food Project,
>www.thefoodproject.org).  More aimed at middle and high school.
>A special bonus:  one of my all time favorites to use with kids is Paul
>Fleischman's Seedfolks, a short novel told from the point of view of a
>diverse group of people who make a community garden out of an abandoned lot.
>Good luck!  I'd love to know what you come up with.
