Island Coast Seed to Table event

April 17, 2019
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Island Coast High School is celebrating the Academy of Natural Resources teaching sustainability to hundreds of students for 10 years with a special Seed to Table event to be held Friday, April 19.

The evening includes a seed-to-table fish and chips dinner for $10. Everything served will have been grown on campus. There will be free workshops on using rain barrels and home hydroponics. Barrels and kits will be available for purchase. Guests can also fish for tilapia, pick their own vegetables from the farmer's market and bid on items in a silent auction. The day will start with a fish filleting competition.

"This event will be showcasing the sustainable lessons that our students have learned through the years," said Joseph Mallon, the Founder of the Natural Resources Academy. "All proceeds will go to the Academy of Natural resources to continue to give our students an enhanced, hands-on education that will benefit them and our community for years to come."

Island Coast set up the School District of Lee County's first Natural Resources Academy in 2009. It has a thematic focus on environmental studies and sustainability. The program is highlighted by an Aquaculture and Hydroponic laboratory program that integrates agriscience, aquaculture, and general environmental issues, as well as alternative energies.

Anyone interested in attending is asked to please register first. Email . The Seed to Table Event is planned for 4 to 7 p.m. on the campus at 2125 De Navarra Parkway in Cape Coral.
