As requested, here is some more information on the titles I listed. I
haven't ordered any of these for about a year, so the prices may have
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. The ISBN is
0130900702. Normally you could contact Addison-Wesley directly, at (800)
282-0693, but they said they're sold out and don't foresee restocking. I
looked on amazon.com, and they have it for $22.40 (normally $32). Barnes
and Noble online doesn't seem to have it. It's a great book; this edition
came out in May and it's already sold out.
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. Contact
them directly at their website. Each copy costs $24.95.
Paul Fleischman, 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.
You can get this just about anywhere. Amazon, for instance, lists it for
4.95 paperback. It's a great read-alound book, or you can get a class set.
