Seed to Table Education: Transition Garden Project

TGP Students In Kitchen

“The Transition Garden Project (TGP) and Springfield Public Schools (SPS) have enjoyed collaboration with Sprout! and NEDCO that has allowed us to increase service to students in our district. The TGP serves students with disabilities, teaching work skills and helping students find and keep employment. With the help of NEDCO we have doubled the amount of students served by providing an outlet for our student run farm program. Students learn an academically integrated program that includes “seed to table education.” Using the kitchen at Sprout! students will provide organically grown produce, grown by them, to our school cafeterias. SPS and TGP are pleased to support and be a community partner of NEDCO and Sprout!” – Kevin Hillman of Springfield Public Schools Youth Transition Program, Marketplace@Sprout! vendor and Kitchen@Sprout!
