A visit to a Vermont public school garden through the seasons.

POPCORN STORAGE AT WESTMINSTER SCHOOL

Leave a comment

In an earlier post, our fourth graders took a spring field trip to the Harlow Farm. They saw an antique popcorn kernel remover, still in operation. They also saw an innovative way of storing popcorn in a ‘sealed’ container that allowed for the airflow that popcorn kernels need for curing. We went back to school and tried to replicate this storage design. I predrilled holes in the PVC pipes after precutting them. I also drilled holes  the mini rubber trash container. A team of fourth graders put their heads together to figure out assembly of our own school popcorn storage unit. The way they worked together was impressive!team workpopcorn stored
