This study is a case study focusing on environmental communications within the curriculum for elementary students. Kindergarten and first grade students participate in hands on education about healthy food habits as well as developing awareness of composting and recycling. The study seeks to understand how elementary students communicate what they have learned in school about local and fresh foods, composting and recycling with their families. This case study is made possible through service learning with the Feast program at Vance Elementary School, which promotes the importance of growing local food, eating fresh, recycling and composting. Interviews with the participating students and their parents were conducted. This study broadens the literature on environment education and communication in elementary school.
