Grant #19: Pam, Ellie & Nancy – Nourishing the North Shore
Nourishing the North Shore’s mission is to ensure equal access to healthy food for all members of the greater Newburyport community. This spring, Nourishing the North Shore will use their $5,000 grant from the b.good Family Foundation to fund repairs to their greenhouse that will help turn it into a year-round seedling factory. This means Nourishing the North Shore will be able to grow more food all year round for their sliding-fee-scale CSA program, provide more jobs to local adults with disabilities through a partnership with Opportunity Works, and host more garden education programs for local kids. Plus, growing their own seedlings will help Nourishing the North Shore save money in the long run. We are proud to support a program that so consciously connects local agriculture with nutrition education and a focus on social justice.
