The school cafeteria will be including freshly grown produce from the school garden that day.

We will show our thanks and appreciation to our guests of honor, representing several groups. These organizations have been vital partners and supporters of the school garden:

Good Cheer has been largely responsible for starting and continuing the LMS garden. The garden has been providing service and science learning for our students, while providing produce for the Good Cheer Food Bank.

South Whidbey Schools Foundation has been supporting gardens throughout the district for many years, as well as showcasing our “Fresh Food for Lunch” project this year.

Whidbey Island Garden Tour has provided financial support of garden projects for several years.

Community Education Center has been helping to coordinate and support our efforts.

Cary Peterson has worked tirelessly to coordinate and collaborate with these groups. Her efforts are moving us forward, involving the MS students in the real-world work of growing food!
