Harvest of the Month
Why Harvest of the Month?
Seasonality Wheel
Harvest of the Month materials spotlight fruits and vegetables grown in Texas through the year. Incorporating Harvest of the Month into your Farm Fresh activities provides an opportunity to focus on a specific fruit or vegetable each month, allowing children to try and learn more about each item.

Materials are ready-to-go tools and resources that can be used in diverse settings.

Use these materials in the following settings
  • Schools
  • Child Care centers
  • Day Care homes
  • Summer nutrition program sites
  • And many more!

 By incorporating Harvest of the Month in the cafeteria and classroom, you help connect students to the bounty of the Lone Star State.
