5th,6th,7th, & 8th grade salsa!


Our Orca tomatoes are a big source of pride around here. They are grown from seed by students and the plants produce some of the most delicious tomatoes you have ever had. Multicolored salsa was made this last week: cherry, heirloom, & slicer tomatoes galore.


It’s a very fresh and delicious snack to make from scratch. We got some new “kid friendly” cutting knives and a plethora of new bamboo cutting boards to make this project more seamless.


It was a hit all around. It really is amazing to see new Orca students who have not had years of my “fresh, free, local, organic” propaganda. These new students really get their minds and taste buds blown wide open when they pick food w/ their classmates and prepare it in the greenhouse. They start as skeptics many times and end up as full blown chef participants. It’s great to start off the year by “breaking bread” together and having some delicious hands-on fun.
