Grown Local!

Vision

To improve local food security by educating students, their families and the community about the importance of supporting local farmers and taking responsibility for our own food production.

Action

High school students have begun learning how to plant and grow vegetables and learn the importance of backyard gardening in terms of improving the availability of food. In addition, they have researched and passed on important information regarding local growers, their available crops, and locations that the public can purchase their goods. Finally, they have become familiar with community organizations such as Eat Local, that provides a hub for local farmers to market their foods.
