EcoSpaces is taking a holistic approach to developing healthy relationships between children, family and food. To get the IOP team up to speed, we took a field trip to visit Phillips Academy to learn and see the EcoSpaces program in action.
Building on the success of the current program, it will be expanded to other schools, with the goal of offering resources for educators and families to prioritize seed-to-table-to-soil food education by giving kids the tools to understand where food comes from, how it nourishes us, and how it shapes our relationships.
We had a great time meeting their passionate team and seeing the students that benefit from this unique program. We’re excited to help build the EcoSpaces brand and will share our progress as it unfolds. Stay tuned.
