Farm to Early Care and Education shared metrics: Outcomes, indicators, and measures for Farm to ECE evaluation: User guide and framing resource


The Farm to Early Care and Education (Farm to ECE) Shared Metrics resource is intended for farm to ECE practitioners and evaluators to guide planning, implementation, research, evaluation, and reporting efforts. The resource builds on National Farm to School Network’s (NFSN) 2014 resource, Evaluation for Transformation: A Cross Sectoral Evaluation Framework for Farm to School, but draws out and customizes outcomes, indicators, and measures specific to farm to ECE and emphasizes metrics related to equity. This work aligns with farm to ECE metrics and tools to move our collective work forward under shared priorities and language. This alignment of priorities can also guide and improve decision-making for policymakers and funders who will be able to make better-informed decisions on the growth and direction of the farm to ECE movement.
