Edible Classroom

Edible Classroom

Students learn about “seed to table” progression, food security, and hunger issues right in their own backyard through their engagement in the “Edible Classroom” (school garden/orchard). Students personally deliver over 300 pounds of fresh produce to the local Food Shelf every year. 

Students’ engagement in food production through the Edible Classroom includes participation in organic recycling and “Table to Compost” activities, and involvement in community service (several anti-hunger projects).
