I have two sets of photos here. One of the garden to table event. The kale was used in the smoothies we prepared for the entire school-staff and students.

The other photos are from the 20 yards of dirt we ordered with grant finds to fill more beds.

Go big or go home!

Thanks Jeremy!

Thanks, Jeremy Kottkamp!

Jeremy Kottkamp of 721X sent in these photographs. The students were participating in a Garden to Cafe event, peeling, slicing and preparing their vegetables.

According to Jeremy K,

“This is our remaining tomato harvest from the fall. They were picked green before the last frost and they are ripening inside our classroom.”
