G.O.T Farms? We do! This service-learning project is an after school program for Telstar Middle and High School students led by TMS teacher Melissa Prescott and Maisey Griffin. Student volunteers meet once per week from 2:30–5pm. They have been working on many projects related to the project goals and have made a great deal of progress.

 

Students and teachers collaborate to improve the health of the citizens of the SAD#44 by working toward the following goals:

 

—Use the school gardens and greenhouse to grow food for the Telstar Complex, and to support learning across the Telstar curriculum.

 

—Raise awareness of the importance of eating organically and locally.

 

—Strengthen our “Farm to School” connections and work together with the kitchen staff and the community to bring local foods to the Telstar table more often.

 

—Develop sustainable and mutually beneficial partnerships with organizations and businesses in the SAD #44 community.

 

If you have any questions about this project, please let us know.  We would like to involve as many SAD#44 staff and community members as possible.  Please contact any of us if you would like to be involved in this project in any way.

 

– Melissa Prescott – GOT Farms Advisor, TMS Visual Art Teacher
