Project Share: The Project SHARE curriculum aims to build high school students' skills to reduce health disparities at the personal, family and community level. The curriculum aligns with national standards and can be used in diverse settings nationwide: schools, libraries, community-based organizations, and community-academic partnerships.
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.
This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the New Hampshire State Library.
