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.
