The purpose of the Tennyson High School farm is to teach the community how to grow and cook fresh, healthy food. Students who are involved with the farm learn how to grow and cook healthy food and teach others how to live a healthy life. We are growing a variety of Organic fruits, vegetables, beans, and grains for the THS community. All of the food grown on the farm goes into cooking classes, home with students and staff, and the extra produce is donated to the Meals of Love soup kitchen. Students can get involved with the farm in a variety of ways! Teachers bring their students to the farm to learn in the Outdoor Classroom.
Students can work on the farm as a Fresh Crew Farm Intern, SUPER Fresh Crew Farm Intern, or a ProFRESHional Farm Intern. Students can also volunteer on the farm and earn community service credit any Monday or Thursday after school.
