Our students are planting seeds and cultivating knowledge 🧑‍🌾 This is our second year of partnership with FoodCorps, a national program focused on food justice. Elementary students are planting gardens, learning about the environment, and getting hands-on with where food comes from. This program is supported in part through MA FRESH grand funding from the Massachusetts DESE, which is being used to maintain gardens at each elementary school and provide classroom supplies so that students can enjoy their harvest 🥕🍅
