Oxbow Farm reached out to us to develop a farm & school connection. For the next two months we will get a weekly box of produce from their farm. This helps us work with cooking and food preparation in the classroom. It also puts a taste to the “idea” of a farm- which will culminate in a a field trip to the farm for many of these classrooms. Having this farm connection with Orca will be such an amazing partnership. thank you Oxbow!
Today, students were exploring our wormbins. But after that, we sampled some Oxbow goodies (greenbeans & broccoli) and threw any scraps right into the wormbins. Sustainability!
