We’ve been growing all summer long getting ready for the children to return in September. The scarlet runner bean teepee has now reached the top of the 15 ft bamboo poles! Cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, basil, kale, beans, zucchini, basil, cabbage, peppers, broccoli, ground cherries, pea sprouts and spinach… we’ll be ready for the classes, for garden tacos at the end of class, and also for deliveries to the cafeteria!
The pizza camps were great fun and quite delicious, with the children preparing the tomato sauce, pesto, dough, cheese and veggies they created the pizzas with.
Tuesday morning work parties will continue though the last Tuesday in August, and then… school begins!
Here are some photos of one of our work parties taken by Kathy Reed, who wrote about the School Farm in the Whidbey Weekly (pg 8).
