On Sunday, June 5, State Road Restaurant hosted a fundraising dinner for Island Grown Schools (IGS), part of Island Grown Initiative (IGI).
Farms and businesses across the Island donated their goods for the feast: there was lamb from Allen Farm, bok choy from Bluebird Farm, The FARM Institute’s pork, chicken from The Good Farm, eggs from The Grey Barn Farm, bluefish from Gus Leaf, veggies, herbs, and eggs from Morning Glory Farm, shiitake mushrooms and lettuce from North Tabor Farm, Rickard’s Bakery bread, and Sweetneck Farm oysters.
Island children participated with readings, songs, poems, and artwork. Violet Cabot, West Tisbury School third grader, sang and read a poem she wrote. Third grader Katherine, second grader Amber, and kindergartener Nathan, all of the Cuthbert family of Edgartown, presented drawings and poems. First grader Oliver Lively and sixth grader Abbie Lively, also of the Edgartown School, read to the crowd.
