Kindergarten got the chance to go outside, dig up their own potatoes, and come inside to watch them turned into french fries. This is an annual tradition here that takes a common food that most people enjoy and puts a local, fresh, organic twist on it.

While we don’t want to fry everything in the garden , this is a fun activity that gets kids excited about what we grow and understanding the garden origins of common delicacies.

Oh the joy!

Oh the joy!

They got a chance to make their own “fry boxes” that display their interpretation of this activity.

Yum!

Yum!

They get to use art to display their learning and get as creative as possible.

Yes!

Yes!

They really love this activity and usually always ask about it all year. It’s really special to see kids excited and engaged in such a “foodie” activity.
