Class and lunch harvest updates

It’s been such a busy first two weeks of school! Just a quick note, and photos to follow as we get releases for them. We’ve harvested over 250 lbs of fresh veggies for the cafeterias– lettuce, spinach, kale, broccoli, cucumbers, carrots, cherry and slicing tomatoes, beans, and zucchini. Garden tacos have been wildly popular in the garden classes, too.

First, Second, Fifth and Seventh grade classes are in the garden so far this fall. Stay tuned for photos and lesson plans on their activities.

We put up the ridgepole and purlins on the hoophouse at our Sept. 6th work party, and are now working on the endwalls during the week. Good progress is being made!

Because the garden-grown greens are so popular, we’re continuing to plant lettuce and spinach, and will work with different season-extending techniques to see how much production for the salad bar we can get as the season turns to winter.
