“I love the idea of students being able to garden year-round and not be limited by the winter weather. As an educator, I knew students would see the Flex Farm and they would be automatically drawn to it. Having this system allows them to see their progress throughout a growing cycle. It’s amazing how chemistry is involved, checking the pH level and nutrient level on a daily basis. When kids notice something is going wrong or if there is an issue, I let them figure it out. It’s really fun to watch them see success and use their problem-solving skills.”

Emily Bennett
High School Teacher

“Our school is heavy into service-learning. We had the kids brainstorm about what they believed was an issue the community faces. They suggested hunger. We engaged with a local pantry and the kids grew fresh lettuce to be donated. It was an amazing opportunity because it encouraged students to think about how they could improve their community and gave them the ability to take action themselves.”

Cassandra Graff

“As a former science teacher and current curriculum resource for our district, I want to compliment Fork Farms on the high quality of the Flex Farm. The ease of use of the components and well-thought-out design make it very usable in the classroom. Having the curriculum materials available allows teachers to incorporate this wonderful resource into their teaching as part of the core instruction and not just a stand-alone project”

Dr. Georgia Kraus
District Curriculum Coordinator

“The Flex Farm is revolutionary for education because it allows students and teachers to use it as a flexible, hands-on and interdisciplinary tool for teaching that goes beyond traditional ‘sit and get’ teaching methods,”

Wendell Willis
Former Chief Operations Officer

“The Fork Farm system is innovative because it simplifies the hydroponic approach, minimizes the footprint necessary, and has an integrated lighting system. Support for running the system is great, and the staff are always willing to answer questions and stop by to help. Now, we are able to teach everything from the nitrogen cycle to the life cycle of plants to the benefits of healthy eating with one system. Students are engaged with the system at every stage of the process, from seeding to harvesting, to packaging and selling. This is a great addition to any classroom and school.”

Hason Stellmacher
High School Science Teacher
