This summer, the School Farm helped supply fresh organic produce to “Fun with Food”, a terrific program organized by Whidbey Island Nourishes (WIN). For 10 weeks, the students met once weekly to have fun learning about preparing, cooking and eating food from the garden and the kitchen. Baking delicious crackers and healthy cookies also included!

A gala celebration was held August 26th for the students graduation, complete with certificates and a delicious buffet. It was also the occasion of WIN donating $10,000 to the School Farm and Garden Program for its garden-based curriculum in the schools! Click HERE for the article in Whidbey Life Magazine.
