Hands-on Nutrition Education
Cornucopia Project began with a small plot of land and one woman’s dream to connect kids to local healthy food. Now Cornucopia Project provides garden education to nine elementary schools, offers youth cooking classes to hundreds and operates an Educational Farm in Peterborough, NH that supplies produce to families, restaurants, food pantries, community suppers, and schools. What started as a community garden is today a thriving nonprofit that provides hands-on nutrition education to more than two thousand children in Southern NH each year.
ROOTED IN SUSTAINABILITY
School gardens are a living outdoor classroom where children grow, eat and learn in harmony with nature.
Young chefs explore plant-based menus using local ingredients, with local chefs.
Students of all ages discover regenerative farming and uncover the beauty and wonder of sustainable food production.
We are connected by our shared need for a thriving food system and a healthy environment. Our work in the community and local partnerships feed the roots of community resilience.
We envision a resilient community that celebrates healthy food, hands-on learning and environmental sustainability.
Since 2005 the Cornucopia Project has led farm to school education for New Hampshire students.
With healthy, local, sustainably-grown produce at the heart of all we do, the Cornucopia Project helps to build strong, healthy communities with agriculture-based nutrition education for children of all ages. We are growing the future leaders of a sustainable food system. Join us!
