The 24-foot trailer, tugged by a burly Ford F-350 pickup, pulls to a stop.
Side doors fling open to reveal enormous drawers - pullout garden beds containing planters of leafy vegetables and a small kitchen counter.
The Farm Explorer, as this farm on wheels is called, is a project commissioned by Greener Partners, a local nonprofit whose mission includes sustainable farming and farm-based education.
In areas where people can't get to the farm, Greener Partners wants to bring the farm to people, especially children.
"As our tagline shows: 'grow, cook, eat, inspire,' " said Meg MacCurtin, Greener Partners' director of education. "It's to show the origins where food comes from. Kids can actually see plants growing in the soil. They can harvest them. Research has shown that curriculum combining gardening education with nutrition education enhances youths' willingness to try and enjoy fruits and vegetables."
