Ahhh the joy of seeing kids eating up delicious salad that they grew. We harvested lettuce, kale, chard, fennel, kale flowers, and more and mixed up some delicious salad that they absolutely loved (all right- a few turned their noses up- but hey! we had a 90% success rate). Parents come up to me every year and say that they are shocked when their kid starts eating greens and salads & how happy they are that the Orca garden got them hyped about eating fresh garden food.
It was a delightful sunny day (almost summer like) and the students got to do all the harvesting and preparing. I love those kid friendly plastic knives that we use. Kids feel a sense of pride & ownership in growing and preparing food they eat. Throw a little olive oil and apple cider vinegar on it and YUM! Plus it’s local, organic, fresh, and FREE!
