Community Garden

Nourishing the North Shore’s Organic Community Garden is more than just a place to grow food, it's a place to grow community.  Join today!


VEGOUT Mobile Market

The VEGOUT Mobile Markets bring healthy, local produce to members in our community that often do not have access to these food choices.

June - October


Classes: Cooking and Gardening

Explore NNS’s variety of cooking and gardening classes. Taught by local farmers, cooks, and community members the NNS classes are affordable, fun, and inclusive!


Pitch In Project

Made up of first time farmers, the Pitch In Crew travels to NNS's partner farms each week to weed, plant, spread compost, harvest, and everything in between! The crew lends small farmers a hand during the busiest time of the season while getting kids involved in their local food system! The 2018 crew is funded by New England Grassroots Environmental Fund, thank you NEGR!!

July - August


School Food Recovery

School Food Recovery is a volunteer driven team that collects excess school foods from Newburyport Public Schools every Friday (sometimes Thursday) and delivers them to the Newbury Food Pantry.

September - June


The Farm + Chicken Families

Nourishing the North Shore has partnered with Growing Humanitarians, a volunteer organization for families with young children, to take care of our 30 hen flock. Collecting eggs, feeding hens, and giving treats!
