Healthy Eating where we live, learn, work, and play!
SHIP partners with Two Harbors Food Shelf, Master Gardeners, and volunteers to help ensure community has access to fresh produce at the Marek-Fuller Community Garden in Two Harbors.
The Farm2School program promotes healthy eating habits, supports neighboring small and mid-sized farmers, and builds the local economy,” explained Hannah Colby, SHIP.
Research shows that school gardens increase kids’ consumption of fruit and veggies, and increases their willingness to try new produce.
Looking ahead! Attendees at this meeting, were asked to envision a future where we enjoy a vibrant regional food economy, producing and consuming twenty percent of our food needs locally.
