Ipswich Sustainable Education
ISE is impacting four public schools and over 1,850 K-12 students through innovative and rigorous hands-on sustainable education in the classroom, cafeteria and community.
A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN IPSWICH SCHOOLS AND THE GREATER COMMUNITY THAT EMPOWERS EVERY MEMBER TO ENRICH THEIR LIVES BY TASTING, FEELING, AND EXPERIENCING OUR LOCAL AGRICULTURE.
“Generation Growers” is an exciting new program. At the IHS entrance, we’re building a new public fruit and vegetable garden with a special focus: to bridge generations and lifestyles. The effort seeks to bring the older adults in our community together with our youth by encouraging them to work together on the challenges and rewards of a common garden. Stay tuned for updates on this project!
Environmental awareness starts with spending time outdoors, understanding how plants grow, and experiencing weather and the change of seasons. ISE has partnered with each school to develop onsite gardens that children help tend and harvest. School gardens have been shown to foster excitement among children and a sense of wonder that something they helped plant can become delicious food. The gardens are also places of respite for the kids outside the confines of the school building.
