Farm to School
Our "Farm to School" program allows Kindergarden through 6th grade students from the Village School of North Bennington to learn about organic farming, healthy eating, and the environment.
The renovation of the Hiland Hall Gardens began in the spring of 2007. The mission of the Friends of Hiland Hall Gardens is to restore, re-build and sustain the Gardens and the unique Victorian-style Grapery to their original splendor. Additionally our goal is to re-establish these resources as a center for education, gardening, and gardeners in the greater Bennington area. Along with the renovation of the Gardens and Grapery, our commitment is to create a garden where community will grow alongside flowers, grapes, herbs and pumpkins.
Our internship program runs from June through the end of August each Summer. The program encourages local high school students to take part in a 6 week paid internship with a focus on learning gardening, harvesting and food preparation. To apply, please send an email to TFOHHG@gmail.com
