Join us for our fifth annual Farm Fresh Feast fundraising event ~ Saturday, July 19th, 2014!  

Join us once again in the picturesque fields of Bartlett’s Farm for a magical evening that celebrates our programs and community.  Last year’s Farm Fresh Feast was one of the island’s premier events and this year promises to be equally as memorable!  The evening will begin with a cocktail party followed by a farm fresh dinner served in the midst of the fields under an open sky (dinner will be served under the tent in the event of rain).  A truly unique silent and live auction as well as dancing will add to the enjoyment of the evening.

FFF FieldThis year we are offering two ticket options: Cocktail Party ~ Join us for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and silent auction for $50/person (5:30 – 7pm). CLICK HERE to purchase tickets read more>>

radish harvest The late arrival of spring to Nantucket didn’t stop students participating in the Farm to School Program from producing a beautiful bounty of delicious radishes. In early April a group of students from the Nantucket Boys and Girls Club helped us sow our first crop of  “Easter Egg” radishes  which were served in the Nantucket Public School cafeteria’s a little over month later. read more>>

The Nantucket Islands Land Bank has approved Sustainable Nantucket’s proposal to lease two acres of land at the 168 Hummock Pond Rd property for the SN Educational Community Farm!
This new program is intended to “grow new growers” by providing acreage and a support system for motivated community members to grow their own organic produce which will be available for purchase by the local community. Due to the finite amount and high cost  of land on the island, opportunities to be a beginning farmer and grow food commercially on Nantucket have been almost non-existent. The community farm will change that. read more>>
