Students and teachers grow food in over 23 school gardens throughout Bridgeport. We support their efforts to grow fresh, healthy produce by providing agricultural workshops, garden supplies, easy-to-use crop plans, and hands-on support.
We are working with Sacred Heart University to develop and distribute school garden lesson plans that meet Bridgeport curriculum standards. These will be available to every teacher in Bridgeport this semester!
Over 500 students grow food in school gardens, and about 400 students visit our educational farm each year for experiential learning field trips where they learn skills that they bring back to their school gardens.
