In the 2018-2019 school year, over 6700 kids in 21 schools across four school districts in Whatcom County gardened, cooked, and ate with Common threads.

But so what? What changed because of our programs? 

In the spring of 2019, we conducted an evaluation of our school-based gardening and cooking programs to see if we were achieving our intended impacts. What we learned was pretty gratifying. You can view a summary or read the full report.  

If healthy, happy, brave, curious children are “your cup of tea,” it turns out that investing in school based food education programs is a good choice. 

Thank you, again and again, for your support!
