Moby the Mobile Greenhouse: Kickstarting Southeast Growing

 
Moby travels across Southeast Alaska kickstarting local growing efforts. Over the past three years, Moby spent growing seasons in Juneau, Kake, Hoonah, and Yakutat, and has catalyzed interest in growing food through hands-on learning at schools and in communities. In Spring 2019, Moby is headed to the community of Sitka. Moby is a stepping stone that inspires communities to continue growing food locally while supporting a more resilient and food-secure Southeast Alaska!
 
Each year, Moby travels to a different Southeast Alaskan community where it lives from spring to autumn. The greenhouse is delivered equipped with soil, a teacher guide, and an activity manual for grades K-12. The recipient is responsible for providing seeds to plant and will be chosen based on their commitment and readiness. Moby is a project of the Southeast Alaska Watershed Coalition and the Sustainable Southeast Partnership.
