New Hoophouse

Topics:
Access to Healthy Foods

Northport Public School received a grant to build a hoophouse next to the school playground. This hoophouse will be built, planted, and tended to by K-12 students and community members. The food grown will be used to feed students at lunch time in the cafeteria! A true success story for improving access to and knowledge of healthy foods for all students in the school for years to come! The hoophouse will be built this summer.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students from the student leadership team worked with teachers and community members to plan and create this vision!

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

This hoophouse will be used as an educational resource as well as a source of healthy food for all students in the lunchroom for years to come!
