Moss Haven Farm
Many generations ago, our school grounds were the site of a family farm. Two years ago,Teachers and parents worked together to bring back the farm and created Moss Haven Farm. Our farm continues to grow in our school, as well as community. We have 440 students who benefit from hands on garden and science education on our farm. Our vision has grown to include, not only garden education, but also health and wellness of our students. We have created a "Brain Cafe" where we use our crops to cook nutritious food with our students. We are teaching the health benefits of eating whole organic food. We have made changes to our school food climate, by offering healthy snacks in the classroom and cafeteria. With these changes we earned the award of a Healthy Zone School, partnering with United Way and The Cooper Clinic. We also participate in Fuel Up To Play 60 and work with our local Master Gardeners using their Jr. Master Gardener Program, as well as The American Heart Associaton Teaching Garden Program for garden curriculum. This year, we are planting a "Give Away Garden" where all the produce that is grown in that space will be given to a local food bank. We are growing goodness at our school farm, making differences in our school community as well as our neighborhood!
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
