Students Eat Healthier When They Grow Their Own

Plants have been planted in the school garden for fall (six types of lettuce and two types of kale). All students Pre-K to 5th participated in the planting. These plants, when harvested, will be used in the school hot lunch program. Hopefully we will be harvesting lettuce in early December and kale in January/February. We had visitors at the school one day this week and even the 1st graders were telling them about the red romaine and dinosaur kale they had planted and about how they were going to eat kale chips when we harvest. Teachers are in the process of planning spring planting.
