Buy Local! Introducing School Garden Farmers Markets

School Garden Market Sign

OSSE is proud to support DC schools participating in the School Garden Farmers Market Program.  The program, managed by DC Greens, is in its pilot year and includes five schools: Hardy MS, Capitol City PCS, Janney ES, Seaton ES, Thurgood Marshall Academy PCS, and JO Wilson ES.  Last week marked the first of 10 fall markets in which youth will harvest, weigh, and sell produce from their school garden, all while learning important business, social, and healthy living skills.  OSSE is excited to see healthy fundraising activities like this that provides valuable hands-on learning opportunities for students.

Check out your school garden market this week!
