Martha's Vineyard Regional High School (MVRHS) Culinary Arts, Island Grown Schools, and Island farmer and chef Chris Fischer are collaborating to host a locally sourced harvest dinner to raise money for the new high school garden.
The evening will begin at 5:30 pm on Monday, November 5, with garden tours, hors d'oeuvres, and music in the garden, followed by a multi-course dinner featuring Island grown ingredients, including beautiful produce grown fresh from the MVRHS garden. All proceeds go towards soil, seeds, and tools for the garden. Tickets are available for sale at MVRHS, Cronig's Market, and the Allen Farm in Chilmark.
The mission of the garden, as defined by MVRHS students, is to engage and empower students in the process of growing fresh, local food for their school community. The produce grown in the garden is served in the cafeteria, while the garden itself will be integrated into student learning through curriculum connections and service learning opportunities.
Admission is $30; $15 for children 12 and under. For more information, email Kaila Binney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
