Organic Farming Curriculum: High School

Georgia Organics, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting locally grown food and organic farms, has produced a curriculum for high school students and adults to learn about organic farming and gardening. The curriculum, Fundamentals of Organic Farming and Gardening: An Instructor’s Guide, explores the basics of organics—including soils, soil biology, soil management, plant biology, crop management, composting, and marketing—through videos, lab exercises, student activities, and PowerPoint presentations. Teachers can use the curriculum in its entirety, or select sections to supplement a general course on agriculture or gardening. The curriculum is free to download.
