Cornucopia Project to host open house Friday

For eight years, the Cornucopia Project has been offering gardening classes and nutrition education for children and adults in the Monadnock region.

During this time, the organization has grown from teaching gardening at one local elementary school to its goal of providing garden education at all seven elementary schools in the ConVal School District. This year, the nonprofit organization also officially opened the Cornucopia Community Garden at the Peterborough Community Center, providing fresh vegetables to area food pantries.

To celebrate these achievements and to announce future plans, the Cornucopia Project will celebrate with an open house at its offices in downtown Peterborough on Friday.

The public is invited to learn more about the organization, and to meet the staff and board members. There will be a brief presentation at 6 p.m., including a special 70th birthday tribute to Cornucopia founder Kin Schilling. Refreshments will be provided.

“There have been so many exciting developments happening at Cornucopia over the past year that we want to share with the community,” says Karen Fitzgerald, president of the Board of Directors. “We thought a year-end open house would be a perfect opportunity to share our accomplishments, talk about our future, and thank our many friends and supporters. It is also the perfect opportunity to wish Kin a happy 70th.”

The Cornucopia Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching sustainable and nourishing life practices to children and adults by connecting them to the land and community through organic gardening.
