This popular, nutritious program depends greatly on the terrific, seasonally available organic produce. Each day, children immerse themselves in new and familiar locally grown vegetables, fruits, herbs and even edible flowers to create delicious snacks ranging from pizza to salad and stir fry to oven treats. These healthy products are harvested, prepped, prepared and enjoyed by all the children for a marvelous daily community celebration. Dish cleaning management skills are taught.
Red velvet beet cake, zucchini bread, quinoa & kale salad and homemade rainbow chard stem hummus are just a few of the possible, delicious items to collaboratively make during the course of a three hour program. It is quite a fun activity to identify a vegetable or an herb growing in the garden, harvest, wash and incorporate them all into a tasty snack. And eat them too.
