RSU1 is now using greens from Springworks Farms in Lisbon at a few schools in the district. These greens are grown using aquaponics: the plants are suspended in a large tank of water and the nutrients they need to grow are supplied by fish located in an adjoining tank. These greens are grown year-round and delivered right to our door!
This is just one of the many items we are using locally to feed our kids.
Please support our efforts next week during Maine Harvest Week! We will be offering a special Harvest Lunch on 9/19 to celebrate the harvest!
