Coupeville Farm to School

The Coupeville Farm to School (CF2S) program is a community driven, community supported effort to help our kids get excited about learning the science and art behind gardening, growing their own food, and setting healthy eating habits at a young age. CF2S supports learning, creativity, and promotes the health of our students through plants, gardens, and cooking.

CF2S is a non-profit that partners with the Coupeville Public School district in Coupeville, WA in the Ebey's National Historical Reserve on beautiful Whidbey Island. Being in the heart of a rich agricultural community, we work with farmers to promote an understanding of where food comes from, how it is grown, and how to make healthy food choices with the students of the district.
