Unique High School Food Slideshow

Slide 1 of 12
Project Sprout

Founded in 2007 by three students from Monument Mountain Regional High School, Project Sprout began as a 3,500-square-foot student-run garden on school grounds. Created to provide fresh produce to both the school and community, the project tripled in size over the next few years and grew to include a fruit orchard.

The produce from the Great Barrington, Mass.-based garden is served almost daily in school lunches — local soup kitchens and homeless shelters also benefit from the bounty. The farm serves as educational tool for the community and inspires students to think about where food comes from.
