This year for National Farm to School Month we say goodbye to our old garden space as we welcome our new garden location!
Beginning in the Spring of 2015 Sustainable Nantucket has been working with the Nantucket Public Schools and SMART Architects and Engineers to find they best location for the Farm to School Garden as they began to redesign the NPS campus to meet the needs of our growing population. Finding the perfect space took many hours over several months and we are beyond grateful to have found a space along side the baseball fields at the Nantucket Elementary School. read more>>

The Farm to School Program partnered with the Nantucket Community School for the final two weeks of summer to offer a small group of children the opportunity to explore agriculture and environmental stewardship. Over the past two weeks, we have incorporated science, nutrition and writing into a camp style program that included field trips, art projects and movement games. As a pilot for next year’s new Farm to School Summer Program, we were thrilled to explore these topics and see the enthusiasm of the students as they engaged in interactive lessons.
