We have begun to grow our herbs and a few vegetables for our healthy snacks garden, from which we are going to make mini muffin pizzas and salsa. The students were fascinated as we planted the seeds and are beginning to track the growth. Our goal is to show our students how they can grow and create easy healthy snacks.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

A community member helped us to plan and then build a garden from our seedlings.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Because we are taking our seedlings outside, we hope they will grow each year in order to create healthy snacks yearly.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

For our garden, weather and location are difficult factors. We may have to adjust what we grow based upon this.
