The FARM Institute in Edgartown is the beneficiary of a major investment in its continued growth as a first-rate educational facility for Martha’s Vineyard: a state-of-the-art teaching kitchen and event space has recently been completed and is now offering classes. The new kitchen space, designed by island-based Sullivan and Associates, features commercial grade equipment that is designed to be mobile—featuring eight work stations and space for up to 32 students—allowing flexibility for different programs, including lectures and workshop space. “Educational programming around farming and local food production is a key part of our overall mission, including our work here at The FARM Institute,” says Alicia Leuba, Trustees Vice President, Eastern Region. “A teaching kitchen has been part of our vision since our integration with The FARM Institute in 2016. We are thrilled to bring this important project to fruition.” During this inaugural summer of its new kitchen, the farm will offer educational classes and events, featuring guest chefs and instructors, six nights of the week.
The space will be used by the children participating in The FARM Institute’s Summer Camp during the day. Islands Director for The Trustees, Sam Hart, adds, “We are grateful to the many donors and supporters who helped make this kitchen possible. It is a huge asset for the Vineyard community."
