Glen Urquhart School Greenhouse
In 2009, The Food Project partnered with the Glen Urquhart School (GUS) to use half of their newly renovated, 7,000-square-foot greenhouse to grow both food and social consciousness.
The Food Project brings together youth from across the North Shore to grow over 50,000 seedlings in the GUS Greenhouse every year that are planted on our North Shore farms. Each year, seedlings grown in this greenhouse provide over 65,000 servings of healthy vegetables that is sold, donated, and distributed to increase food access throughout the North Shore communities.
Additionally, The Food Project leads workshops on planting and growing food and food justice, and co-hosts food system related films and other activities for both community members and GUS students in the greenhouse.
All of this is possible thanks to the partnership of the Glen Urquhart School community. Click for directions.
