Montana Harvest of the Month Best Practices Guide Available
The Montana Harvest of the Month program has the goal of increasing the sale of specialty crops to Montana institutions. It began by assisting schools in showcasing a food produced in the state each month. The program expanded to include community pilots for Harvest of the Month in Early Childhood Education (ECE) and healthcare facilities. Now the program has produced Montana Harvest of the Month Best Practices Guide to share project results. This guide includes Harvest of the Month project outcomes, lessons learned from the pilots in healthcare and ECE settings, and more details on Growing for Success Part 2, which will extend the Harvest of the Month into grocery store and community business pilot sites. The 16-page publication is available online in PDF.
