Fresh greens, mashed potatoes, kale chips, rhubarb crisp, deviled eggs – it was an Earth Day buffet at The Island School.

To promote the advantages of eating locally, each class created a dish made from local food sources and shared with all members of the school.

Also on Earth Day, The Island School received an award from Washington Green Schools—the first Level 5 certification in the state. All told, 278 schools are members of Washington Green Schools.
