Traditional Foodways Education Program

The Traditional Foodways Education Program (TFEP) is an innovative and holistic initiative that connects elders, farmers and youth through hands-on learning. Elders and farmers are the primary instructors of traditional agriculture and food systems lessons, often sharing knowledge with younger generations in their Native languages. TFEP reinforces and extends lessons from the Edible School Garden Program into the community space.

 

The Traditional Foodways Education Program Guide can be used to help you and your community plan, create, and implement your own Traditional Foodways Education Program.
