Our students had a blast out in the garden with FoodCorps Service Members, Molly and Kelly. They took turns in groups either playing a fun veggie-themed game or harvesting from their class garden bed. At Stefanik, students harvested over 70 lbs of vegetables, including carrots, beets, potatoes, squash, pumpkins, and dry beans. At Bowe, students harvested beets, dry beans, and potatoes. The roasted potatoes at Bowe we're a big hit, with many students asking for seconds!
As always, we're so proud of Chicopee students for being adventurous in the cafeteria, and willing to get their hands dirty in the garden. We're looking forward to spring so we can begin the process all over again with Salad Days!
