With their grant from The Environmental Center, Seed to Table Farm in Sisters purchased a small set of grow lights to increase vegetable production for the school during winter months. This allowed the school to increase the amount of produce grown from zero heads of lettuce to 12 heads of lettuce a week! Providing fresh greens in school lunches will help students connect spring and fall farm-based education with their meals.
In addition, Seed to Table began to experiment with three different hydroponic systems for the high school agriculture and biology classes. These new systems will allow science teachers to conduct experiments and classroom instruction in an up-to-date environment.
Seed to Table also planted a native plant garden utilizing funds from The Environmental Center. The native plant garden will be maintained for use in biology, environmental studies, and agriculture classes.
