We're delighted to have such a wonderful partnership with CitySprouts, a local non-profit that helps create and maintain our school gardens and programs – ones that support learning and inspire our urban school children to participate in the food cycle from seed to compost.
CitySprouts is a school and community program that integrates academic, health, and environmental education in the public schools and in the neighborhood. Working closely with school administrators, teachers, and families, CitySprouts creates school gardens and provides essential support to schools as they extend existing curricula to these outdoor classrooms. CitySprouts’ school and community partnerships ensure that CitySprouts gardens are accessible to children during school, after school and in the summer. Since 2000 CitySprouts has partnered with the Cambridge Public Schools to create a thriving, district-wide school garden program serving more than 4,000 urban children, half of whom are low-income.
