Waldorf Students Grow Food for Cafeteria Year Round

Many schools are looking to school gardens as a way to teach kids how to grow their own food. This week on the Local Food Report, Elspeth Hay visits the Waldorf School of Cape Cod in Cotuit, where a newly erected hoop house enables students to grow food for their lunch program year round.

You can read an essay by gardening teacher Kim Allsup on Elspeth's blog, Diary of a Locavore, where she also links to several other area schools with hoop houses.
