Edgartown School

The Edgartown School garden is the biggest on the island, with 18 raised beds, a potato patch, a cornfield, an orchard, a grape arbor, and a free-standing glass greenhouse. Food and agriculture has become deeply integrated into the school culture: every grade level uses the garden regularly in curriculum-tied lessons, and the cafeteria features local food from island farms and from the school garden in seasonally-based school lunches. The farm to school programming at Edgartown is now coordinated by their own in-house farm to school staff member, who leads lessons throughout the school year. IGS supports the program with monthly Harvest of the Month taste tests.
