Massachusetts Harvest for Students Week

Vineyard schools will be joining with others across the Commonwealth celebrate Massachusetts Harvest for Students week, from September 17-21st. We will be highlighting our new Harvest of the Month program, which will feature the tomato in September, with tomato taste tests and classroom activities, as well as harvesting in the school gardens and leading farm visits. Cafeteria directors will also be highlighting island grown produce throughout the week. For more information on Harvest for Students Week, please visit the Massachusetts Department of Ag Resources website at http://www.mass.gov/agr/markets/Farm_to_school/harvest-week.htm. And if you would like to assist with taste tests, classroom or garden activities, please email Emily Duncker, IGS program administrator, at emily.duncker@islandgrown.org.
