Kindergarten first day!

Oh the joy of the first day of kindergarten GARDEN! We tried a few delicious parts of the garden- cherry tomatoes, mint, fennel, and of course- carrots. We practiced walking in the garden, went over expectations, and tried to explore and eat as much as possible. Our job here in the Orca Garden is to excite kids about the natural world, grow and eat delicious foods, and learn to be stewards of the Earth.

We really try to get students to try new things. Especially in kindergarten it can be a struggle to try foods that you are not used to or have never seen. So we try, try, try again and again to harvest and eat delicious new (and old!) treats from the garden.

The rainbow carrots were a hit and we even fed the scraps to our beloved worm bin- “The Transformation Station”. Stay tuned for more garden updates!
