Project Forward

Project Forward at Cape Cod Community College is a nationally recognized program for students with significant learning disabilities.

Horticulture students from Project Forward volunteer at Meetinghouse Farm for two to four hours a week (weather permitting) during the school year. Students are accompanied by a teacher and teacher assistant.

Students are introduced to horticultural vocabulary, use of hand tools and basic landscape maintenance.

Tasks including planting, weeding, watering, raking and pruning are completed with emphasis on following directions, attention to detail, task completion, teamwork and positive attitude.


Project Forward students were introduced to floral arranging basics in their final Farm visit of the 2014 Fall semester.

Sandwich High School


In the past, Junior and Senior students from Horticulture and Environmental Engineering classes volunteered at the Farm for approximately 3 hours a week (weather permitting) during the school year. Students completed general landscaping work or developed an individual project of interest to them. Students were supervised by Farm volunteers.

Cape Cod Academy

Cape Cod Academy student Kyle Ryder completed his Senior Community Service Project at Meetinghouse Farm during the 2014 season.

Kyle contributed 80 hours of service over a four week period completing a variety of essential gardening tasks.

Though digging in the dirt was quite a change from his typical academic routine, Kyle was dependably curious, positive and hardworking. Kyle moved on to Brandeis University in the fall.  

We hope he doesn’t forget his sunny days in the garden!  

Thanks Kyle!
