Island Grown Schools Thursdays, 11am-noon
Island Grown Schools is happy to be returning again to the CCC this summer! The coordinators will lead our kids in a variety of activities that connect them to where their food comes from. They will plant and harvest vegetables, and even get to taste their efforts!
Island Grown Schools is Martha’s Vineyard’s Farm-to-School Program. IGS brings garden-based learning, healthy, locally grown food, and hands-on farm experiences to almost every school-aged child in our community. They work with all seven public schools on the island, many preschools, and several home daycare providers, serving more than 2,500 students. They have installed and helped to maintain 15 school gardens, and lead more than 1,000 classroom lessons and 80 farm field trips each year. Free members.
