The Seed-to-Table Program at MUSE is a hands-on way for students learn about the connection between their everyday food choices, their health, and the health of our environment. Students:
- Discover how to grow and manage gardens effectively
- Practice core academics in an active, real-world context
- Learn how to cook and prepare food
- See first-hand that agriculture based upon relationships found in nature – permaculture – is both sustainable and self-sufficient
Between our Prime and Upper Campuses, MUSE has over 100 raised garden beds constructed with reclaimed materials. Students choose the plant varieties they want to grow, then sow, tend, and harvest produce for the MUSE Kitchen and MUSE’s community restaurant partners
. Gardening opportunities range from one-on-one projects with the Seed-to-Table Director and the Garden Educator to group projects involving several students and members of the community.
