FOOD SAFETY IN YOUR SCHOOL GARDENS, CLASSROOMS, AND GREENHOUSES

 As interest in educating students about gardening and food production increases, it will be helpful to outline food safety principles in school settings. This fact sheet uses a pre-existing University of Maryland Extension fact sheet and expands it to include more information on rain barrels, lead in soil, chickens, and school policies. It also includes a glossary of terms.
