If you were lucky enough to come to the community barbeque just before school started, you might have had a taste of our pickles or some potato garlic dip (skordalia). Your family might have had a picnic dinner under the shade tent. Massaged kale salads, pesto and more were offered for families to try. Each family brought a potluck dish to share and children were able to meet their teachers before the big first day!
