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

Getting Snack Ready for the Whole School

Bagging hte washed celeryLast week a team of After School  students harvested celery for our all school healthy snack program. Usually our daily fruit and veggie snacks are purchased, but we have enough beautiful celery in our garden to feed the whole student body this fall. Were planning to harvest and serve it once a week until we run out. Celery tops are great additions to homemade broth. Notice the teamwork among this great group of kids!
