The School Farm team and all the students from culinary arts classes are anticipating a fun evening of getting together with friends over good food. We hope to see you at the Elementary School from 5-7 pm!!
One of the most popular culinary arts classes of the year was making fresh homemade tortillas and filling them with garden vegetables and freshly cooked and spiced beans. Students spread the word quickly and soon everyone was anticipating their turn to make tacos!
This was the beginning of our idea to hold a series of festive Taco Tuesdays, March 13, April 10 and May 8 at the Elementary School. The food for the evening will be prepared and served by students. Here is our menu for March:
- Fresh masa corn tortillas-homemade and grilled!
- Just picked and prepared garden vegetables
- School Farm grown beans, cooked and spiced to perfection
- Salsa-fresh and locally sourced

The School Farm has been offered a 2 for 1 match by one of our generous donors. That means if we can reach our goal to raise $5,000.00, we will have $15,000.00! Given the fact that we rely on donations to fund our program, this is a generous offer indeed.
Students from kindergarten through second grade attend weekly farm classes. Students in grades three through 6 attend bi weekly farm classes alternately with culinary arts classes. There is a direct connection between what we do to grow our food and methods we use for preparing it. Culinary classes have gained tremendous momentum and we are considering adding more classes for younger students in the near future. To keep our classes going, we need funds. Taco Tuesdays are a fun-fundraiser for the School Farm and Culinary programs.
See you on March 13th for a fun night of ‘Famous School Farm Tacos’!!
