School Greenhouses Poised to Deliver Tasty and Lasting Changes

Planning is underway for two schools chosen to participate in our Greenhouse-Grown Organic Entrepreneurs program. Congratulations to East Butler Public Schools and York Public Schools!

East Butler and York will bring the farm to school during the 2015-2016 year. Growing edible and organic produce for school meals in the cafeteria, educating students about the sources of their food, and teaching entrepreneurial skills; it’s a triple win!

Creating Buzz About Pollinators

As wild habitat continues to disappear from the landscape, so too do wild pollinators - the native bees, bats, birds, and butterflies that are dependent on this floral diversity to survive and thrive.

This wide-scale decline has triggered alarm for good reason: we need pollinators to eat and live. They are responsible for 85% of the world’s flowering plants, including more than two-thirds of the world’s crop species, according to the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation.
