Orca Collard Rice Rolls!

NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM! More delicious food prepared and devoured by Orca students!


We all got to collect collard leaves from the garden and fill them up with daikon radish, carrots, cucumber, rice, soy sauce, and rice vinegar. We scrubbed & rinsed the leaves off, prepped the food, and got into to eating as much as possible. Many kids went back for 2nds, 3rds, 4ths, and beyond. Our collard tree bush is more like a small tree.


Students really enjoyed chopping up the vegetables and preparing this dish. We have done this over the years w/ rainbow chard & various kales, but this might be the first time w/ collard greens.


Some classes even had enough time to write the recipe down.

The glory of fall!

The garden is looking great this fall w/ all our fall crops and mulch protection.


Our dinosaur kale is looking fabulous. Not enough can be said about the merits of this plant and the fact that it can grow all fall and winter long.


The broccoli & cauliflower starts are looking great too, they really thrive in a mildly cold climate.


Our rainbow chards came from seeds that we harvested out of the garden and replanted.


November salads? We hope so, this romaine is looking pretty good.
