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.
