Russell Morash has been a longtime friend of Nantucket Lighthouse School and an inspiration to generations of gardeners and farmers. From conducting workshops with Lighthouse faculty and contributing to the success of the school's Nantucket Garden Festival, Russ was the obvious choice to serve as the Chair of the school's horticulture studies and as an advisor to their new Director of Horticulture, Rain Harbison.
"I am honored to support the school in its continuing effort to introduce children to gardening. I know from personal experience that learning to garden can be an incredible stimulant. It is a key to understanding how nature works and what part we “humans” must play to protect it for generations to come. I wish I had started my gardening education in a nurturing setting like the one now being created at Nantucket Lighthouse School, so of course I will help in any way I can to share with others the joy I get from this wonderful activity." - Russell Morash
