Jones Valley Teaching Farm (JVTF) is a Pre-K12 education nonprofit in Birmingham, Alabama that builds teaching farms and implements Good School Food, their hands-on food education program, in Birmingham City Schools.
Incorporated as a non-profit in 2002, JVTF began with a simple mission to grow and provide access to fresh produce in downtown Birmingham. In 2012, it refined its mission to increase the long-term impact on students in Birmingham City Schools. Since then, JVTF has educated over 15,000 students through innovative food education programs. It connects students to real-world food issues through cross-curricular, standards-based content during the school day through Good School Food. Good School Food has grown from one to six Birmingham City Schools since the 2012-13 school year.
