Gallatin Valley Farm to School is the proud owner of 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 summer camps during the summer months. Our lessons provide students with the opportunity to plant their own starts, explore the inner workings of a mobile greenhouse, learn how to compost, and much more!
Our school and summer programs are focused on preschool – 8th grade students. Lessons are based on the Next Generation Science Standards and Bozeman School District Health Standards. Topics will include plant parts and functions, plant life cycles and adaptations, composting and food webs, food systems, nutrition and more.
Sign ups and more information about school visits will be available here beginning April 1.
To sign up for a summer program, email Madi@gvfarmtoschool.org with your preferred date, time and age group.
GVF2S is now serving up farm-fresh kids parties on the BOB bus. More info here.
