Glorious glorious sunshine!!! The Autumn Equinox is upon us and we are grateful for our abundant harvest. Kindergarten students came out to the garden to explore the contents of our worm bins (Along with the notion of composting…) and to pick bouquets. The cosmos are exploding around the garden. The students were enthralled with these simple activities. Kindergarten age students are so open to new experiences and getting them connected with food systems and the natural world is so powerful.

Slow Food Seattle has brought us out to speak at this amazing event http://www.artisanfoodfestival.org/. Come have some fun and food with us as we share our vision of garden education, sustainability, and food justice. This speaking panel lasts 45 minutes and is part of an incredible selection of speakers and presenters who love food!
What an amazing harvest we have had so far this year. Melanie’s class came out for their first weekly garden class and did some delicious tasting. We munched on carrots, beets, chard, tomatoes, and cabbage- all picked within 5 minutes of eating! That’s fast food! Making the garden a place for eating is a big focus of our this school year. We have increased our harvest enough that we can finally do more cooking and tasting. It has been a delicious start to teh school year.
