School Gardens

The role of a local food system in the availability of nutritious, affordable food in a community cannot be understated. The CVFSC sees education as a valuable tool for establishing a community understanding of local food systems. Since most  children get at least one meal at school, schools have the potential to provide healthy, local food and build an awareness of where food comes from. Over the past eight years, CVFSC, in partnership with the Vermont Department of Health, has worked with schools to develop universal access to food producing gardens at schools. Last Fall, we were excited to announce that every school in Washington County had a functioning garden! Going forward, CVFSC aims to provide assistance and education to school garden coordinators to build curriculum around school gardens.
