Gallatin Valley Farm to School is pleased to announce a new addition to our education team – BOB, the Bozone Ozone Bus! BOB, a school bus turned mobile greenhouse, travels to schools and community events to teach students about science, nutrition, sustainable agriculture, and environmental stewardship. BOB visits schools in the spring and fall and will provide students with the opportunity to plant their own starters, explore the inner workings of a mobile greenhouse, learn how to compost, and much more!
Our program is focused on 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades, with each lesson lasting about 45 minutes. Lessons are based on Bozeman School District science and health standards, and topics will include plant parts and functions, plant life cycles and adaptations, composting and food webs, nutrition and more.
