School Garden Curriculum:
In 2012, the Prescott Farmers Market hired our assistant manager Ali Kopinto to create a school garden curriculum as part of her graduate program studies. She created a K-3 garden curriculum that is part of the school garden grant award.
The Prescott Farmers Market is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. In addition to offering weekly markets in Prescott, Prescott Valley, and Chino Valley, our mission is to educate the community about the the importance of local food. Please consider donating to support our work.
