​​Welcome to the Training Corner – a place where you can learn how to use all Harvest of the Month resources to create an effective program. Successful implementation of Harvest of the Month requires training of all those who will be working with the monthly elements and those who may be involved in implementing the activities throughout the school community.

We encourage you to follow the steps in sequence since they build on each other and will help you implement a stronger program. Moving at your own pace, this "virtual guide" will walk you through – step by step - these five training components:
  • Step 1 - Background materials to help you learn more and educate others about Harvest of the Month and its many resources.
  • Step 2 - An 11-minute DVD to provide a visual experience of how Harvest of the Month can be implemented in the school environment and beyond.
  • Step 3 - Our Instructional Guide, a downloadable 32-page booklet called How to Grow Healthy Students that features in-depth program information and step-by-step instructions on how to implement Harvest of the Month.
  • Step 4 - A detailed Preparation worksheet with tips, check-off lists, presentation notes and a set outline for conducting trainings.
  • Step 5 - Training Handouts, including samples of activities, to demonstrate how each Harvest of the Month resource can be used.
