In honor of the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance, MA FoodCorps Team rolled up their sleeves and put their shovels in the dirt to build BPS Food and Nutrition Services Department a new garden.

BIG THANK YOU to Sadie Richards, MA FoodCorps Fellow (former MA FoodCorps Service Member at Dearborn Middle School) and her Boston team Marlie Wilson, Stephanie Simmons, Norris Guscott, and Dan Chamberlain for turning our overgrown milkweed patch into a small patch of inspiration!  What better way to inspire fresh healthy school meals than to have a vegetable garden right outside our office!  We are looking forward to a fall crop of radishes, kale, swiss chard, arugula, and more.

This year’s FoodCorps Team will be working with The Food Project and CitySprouts at the Dearborn Middle School and Orchard Gardens K-8 School in Roxbury.  They will be engaging students and teachers with their school gardens, supporting our farm to school efforts in the cafeterias and much more.  We are looking forward to another exciting year with FoodCorps in BPS this year!  THANKS FOODCORPS!
