Veducation (vegetables + education)

"Veducation” (vegetables + education) means to educate someone to eat more vegetables. “You mean Baby Carrot and Broccoli School of Veducation?” was cited on Twitter on November 12, 2010. “Veducation” was used in the title of a newspaper article in 2011.

“Vegucation” (vegan/vegetarian + education) is a similar term.

The J & A Produce CSA in Merillan, Wisconsin near Black River Falls had their 2nd annual Youth Day on the farm.

150 kindergartners from Forest Street Elementary School visited a series of 8 different stations to learn more about produce farming.
