This residency program was developed in collaboration with the ACCA Child Development Center, Annandale, VA. 

Our pilot in Fall 2015 ran for 11 weeks and focused on three different vegetables, spinach, butternut squash, and pumpkin and was based on the USDA's Grow It, Try It, Like It curriculum.

Participating staff members received CEUs as the residency was designed with professional development in mind.
