Chimacum’s Farm to School program includes school garden programs, local sourcing and scratch cooking by School Food Services, and High School Career and Technical Education (CTE) related to food and farm economy.
The school garden program began in the fall of 2019 as a way to introduce fresh food to students through planting, cultivating and tasting garden fresh food. Students at Chimacum Creek Primary (CCP) are helping to design and build a large teaching garden that will soon include vegetable beds, an outdoor teaching area, a tool shed, an herb garden, fruit trees and berry patches, bug hotels, a willow dome, a tunnel and student art.
School Garden Coordinator: Corey Chin (Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org). She works 20 hours a week year-round, spreading her time between Chimacum Creek Primary School and Chimacum Elementary School.
