Wood’s Earth Living Classroom fosters community relationships to cultivate an underdeveloped yet crucial component of the Ithaca area food system—sourcing healthy, local food for our public schools. We believe that youth and community can actively build a more sustainable, cohesive food system by building partnerships to improve school food.

We designed our 2.5 acre field for efficient, organic community gardening and education, and share it with diverse Ithaca youth who learn to grow crops allocated for their school district’s food programs. Wood’s Earth personnel also help build sourcing and distribution relationships between other local producers and the school districts.
