Title of Page

The Quabbin Composting and Organic Gardening Program began in March 2008 with the goal of promoting sustainability in the community. Quabbin Regional High School student volunteers participate in composting cafeteria leftovers and using the resulting compost to enrich and fertilize an organic garden on site. The Quabbin cafeteria finishes the cycle by serving school garden produce at lunches. During summer months, student volunteers sell their produce at local farmers' markets and donate monthly to the local food bank, giving the entire community the taste of real, freshly-grown organic produce.
