GAP Certification and Farm to Table Initiative

We are proud to say that CHS garden is one of five GAP certified school gardens in the state of North Carolina.  GAP certification is a food safety designation that allow us to serve garden produce in the cafeteria.   Working with our food department, and child nutrition, this enables us to have one of the few working farm to table initiatives in North Carolina public schools.
