Abbey Group visits local school greenhouse
Middlebury Union HS Greenhouse
The latest installment in the “Our Partners in Fresh” video series is a bit different from the ones we’ve already done.
Middlebury Union High School science teacher Steve Colangeli approached the marketing department about the school’s alternative education program and the work it does in the school’s greenhouse. At the beginning of November, we paid them a visit.
Students in the program grow greens, lettuce, kale, etc…, harvest them and hand-deliver them to the cafeteria, where they are used in the salad bar. Many of our schools have similar partnerships.
