In support of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day, we have launched a week long campaign in support of Island Grown Schools. We are on a mission to raise 1,000 supporters of IGS by next Saturday. For every new ‘like’ IGS receives on Facebook there will be a seedling donated for a school garden. Island Grown Schools began with a community meeting in 2007. It is time to celebrate all of their hard work. In a few short years, we have seen the amazing impact of IGS: gardens at each of the elementary schools, MVRHS and even some of the preschools. Most recently, IGS along with parents and faculty helped the West Tisbury School and the Chilmark School break away from their corporate food contracts. Let’s show our appreciation for their investment in our children’s future by helping IGS get 1,000 fans this week.
The Vineyard Gazette and Martha’s Vineyard Patch caught wind of the movement. Our friends at Edible Vineyard, The Right Fork Diner, State Road Restaurant, The Scottish Bakehouse, Heather Gardens, and Whippoorwill Farm will be posting all week on Facebook and Twitter to gain support. Join the revolution!!!
