I was sitting around the table with a few people who are not particularly interested in gardening or living off the land, don't know what the word permaculture is etc and I was talking about my hopes and dreams to have land/farm one day. They said oh yeah, you know you can lease land super cheap and get paid to farm as long as you use the farm as an educational resource, teaching school age kids about where food comes from. Really!? I will pack my bags tonight! I would love it if someone could provide me with info. thanks for your time!

If you do a Google search for farm to school (insert state) it will lead you to local info.
The USDA has their program nationwide, but each state seems to operate a web presence.
