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!
As we launch into Session 2 of the program, our students are transitioning from farm work to activism around food and sustainability issues. We finished up Session 1 with a farm-to-table style dinner that used radishes grown in a late fall harvest.
The Environmental Club also coordinated the effort to make it a zero-waste event, helping attendees sort compost and recyclables. It was the first step in our plan to roll out comprehensive composting school-wide.
In early December, the club made a presentation to the high school Leadership Committee, and we will be rolling out the program starting in January. You can access the presentation below!
We would like to congratulate O'Maley Middle School Students Lucy Garberg and Lila Olson for securing an Awesome Gloucester grant to start a composting program at the middle school. Great Job!!!
