Inspiring the growth of Farm to ECE in PA every day!

Welcome to Ready Set Grow!

The Food Trust, in partnership with Pennsylvania Head Start Association, is excited to launch a new initiative, "Ready Set Grow," which aims to increase Farm to Early Learning activities on a statewide level in the early care and education area. When children go on farm field trips, plant seeds or try locally grown foods, they are participating in farm to school activities. Designed to connect them with their local food system and farming community, these activities get kids excited about healthy eating.
Connecting young children and their families to fresh, delicious fruits and vegetables grown in Pennsylvania and connecting those children to how food grows through gardening and other learning opportunities doesn’t just set them on a path to good health but also supports our local agriculture economy and helps build community.
