GARDEN HOUR WITH ISLAND GROWN SCHOOLS, Tuesdays 10:45-11:45am
Island Grown Schools is Martha’s Vineyard’s Farm-to- School Program. At IGS, we bring garden-based learning, healthy, locally grown food, and hands-on farm experiences to almost every school-aged child in our community. This summer, we are happy to be hosting a program at the Chilmark Community Center! Every Tuesday our IGS coordinators will lead campers in a variety of activities that connect them to where their food comes from. They will set up and manage the weekly farm stand in the Chilmark School Garden, plant and harvest vegetables, make healthy snacks together, and visit Beetlebung Farm!
