Backyard Growers is the proud recipient of a Cummings Foundation $100K for 100 grant.
You won’t find any marble columns or spacious gardens on this tour! This is your chance to see how regular Gloucester folks are squeezing vegetable gardens into small spaces to grow some of their own food. You will visit backyard, community & school gardens plus a few special guest gardens where you can learn about chickens and bees!
Today is the last day to register your student for the winter session of O'Maley Academy! Students can join Backyard Growers club and hang out with us in the garden and in the kitchen! Plant, grow, harvest, and cook straight out of the garden. Try new foods and learn how to make some of their favorites. If your child is interested in food culture, health, farming, cooking, school lunch or anything else in the world of food, sign them up for our winter session in January and February!
Also be sure to check out the Environmental Club for those of you with students interested raising public awareness about environmental issues and making real change in Gloucester. This club encourages students to think globally, and act locally.
