Farm to School had a great fall cultivating young farmers and inspiring a new generation of healthy eaters! Here is what the Nantucket students accomplished in the Fall of 2014.
This past Fall introduced our first Garden Explorers After School group, which included an hour and a half packed full of garden activities that allowed students to work together as they learned about farming, food, and nature.

Thank you so much to chef-owner Evan Marley, owner Maria Marley and the rest of the talented Pi Pizzeria team for an amazing conclusion to our 2014 Nantucket Grown Dinner Series. From the first course of ‘Ruthie B. Lobster and Cod with Nantucket Bay Scallops’ to the ‘Trio of Venison,’ we enjoyed the full flavor of a local harvest. Thank you to all of the participating growers: Bartlett’s Farm, Boatyard Farm, Far Away Farm, Moors End Farm, and Pumpkin Pond Farm, as well as to the other island businesses that contributed their local product, including Ambrosia Spices, Small Town Girl, and Venus’ Honey. Thank you also to SN business sponsor Annye’s Whole Foods for generously supplying the wine for the entire Nantucket Grown Dinner series.
