Farm to School Song

Lyrics written by: Anita Schuckert, Owner of Little Steps & Beyond Day Care, Iowa City, IA

(Sung to the tune, “She’ll Be Comin' Round the Mountain")

 

If you grow food in your garden, plant a seed and pull a weed

If you grow food in your garden, dig and hoe and sow a row

If you grow food in your garden, eating fresh is all you know

If you grow food in your garden...

Dig and hoe, sow a row,

Pull a weed and plant a seed

 

If you shop at Farmers Markets, take a bite, Crunch, Crunch

If you shop at Farmers Markets, take a bite, Crunch, Crunch

If you shop at Farmers Markets, then you’re doing something right

If you shop at Farmers Markets...

Do what’s right, take a bite, crunch, crunch

Dig and hoe, sow a row,

Pull a weed and plant a seed

 

If food is delivered from a HUB, rub your tum—Yum, Yum!

If food is delivered from a HUB, rub your tum—Yum, Yum!

If food is delivered from a HUB, then your tum is feeling love

If food is delivered from a HUB, then rub your tum

Feel the love, yum, yum!

Do what’s right, take a bite, crunch, crunch

Dig and hoe, sow a row,

Pull a weed and plant a seed

 

If you’re buying local foods, then clap your hands (clap, clap)

If you’re buying local foods, then clap your hands (clap, clap)

What?!? You buy foods from abroad?  I find that rather odd?!

If you’re buying local foods then clap your hands, (clap, clap)

Local foods, (clap, clap),

Feel the love, rub your tum, yum, yum!

Do what’s right, take a bite, crunch, crunch,

Dig and hoe, sow a row,

Pull a weed and plant a seed

 

If you have a CSA, shout HOORAY! (hooray!)

If you have a CSA, shout HOORAY! (hooray!)

You don’t have a CSA? Then sign up for one today!

If you have a CSA, then shout HOORAY! (hooray)

CSA, HOORAY!

Local foods, (clap, clap),

Feel the love, rub your tum, yum, yum!

Do what’s right, take a bite, crunch, crunch,

Dig and hoe, sow a row,

Pull a weed and plant a seed

 

If you support Farm to School, make a choice

If you support Farm to School, use your voice

If we all buy local foods, our Community can’t lose

Now come on and take a chance and get up off your pants

To support Farm to School and do the dance! 

Plant a seed, pull a weed

Dig and hoe, sow a row,

Do what’s right, take a bite, crunch, crunch

Feel the love, rub your tum, yum, yum!

Local foods, (clap, clap),

CSA, Hooray!

Make a choice, use your voice,

Take a chance, do the dance,

Farm to School,

IS REALLY COOL!
