Carrot-tastic 1st day for kindergarteners

The 1st kindergarten class is always one of my favorites. It’s an annual tradition to do an awesome taste & smell tour- then pick one of those delicious Orca carrots. When I ask students how many of them are picking a carrot and eating it for the first time- more than half the hands go up. This makes my heart perk up- what a beautiful connection to make with food- picking and eating it for the first time. It’s an experience that forms their foundation and concept of food and where it come from. Awesome.

Then we picked some cherry tomatoes (and munched more from yesterdays p-patch harvest). The greenhouse was abuzz with these little Orca bees tasting and sharing- it was a beautiful sight.

Then we got a chance to smell and use our lovely lavender oil- soon they will get their own bottle of it to take home. Buzz on kindergarteners.
