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.
