As part of a community-wide initiative to build edible gardens in our town, Healthy Plymouth and Terra Cura, Inc. are looking for garden helpers this summer at several Plymouth Schools. Please consider signing up for a week or two to make daily visits to help water, weed, and harvest the planting beds. Hands-on training will be offered. A garden task sheet will be available.

Healthy Plymouth and Terra Cura, Inc. have partnered to provide organic, edible gardens to the Plymouth Public Schools and the community. Over 100 members of the Plymouth community have worked together across sectors to install and maintain the gardens. Since April of 2016, this partnership has installed gardens at five schools in Plymouth and three community locations, along with implementing permaculture/garden clubs to support the gardens. The goal is to install gardens at the remaining Plymouth Public Schools in spring of 2017 as well as to add permaculture/garden clubs at these schools. Additional community gardens and the launch of community-wide garden initiatives are also being planned.
Terra Cura is a local nonprofit that integrates edible landscapes with education to create projects that restore the foundation of communities, socially, economically and ecologically. Terra Cura projects are designed to encompass education and experience, as a means of empowering the community, in a collaborative method. The engagement of peers and community members provide an environment where students can have a sense of pride an accomplishment. The engagement in the school community provides hands on opportunities for students to engage in nature and their food systems.
