About the PoP Club toolkit
The PoP Club Toolkit was created in collaboration with the University of Minnesota Extension Family, Health and Wellbeing, Youth Development, and Master Gardeners, as well as the Minnesota Farmers Market Association. Development of the toolkit was supported through a University of Minnesota Issue Area Grant.
As of 2020, we've updated the PoP Club toolkit by adding a section called PoP Plus. This program can be implemented at a farmers market to reach an older adult audience.
If you have any questions about the PoP Club Toolkit, please contact Susan Draves Extension educator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
