After a week of gardening, the Pre-1st students started Thanksgiving early this year with a food tasting done by Good Food for Good People. The students tasted home grown veggies and fruits like carrots, squash, apples, mangoes and even red peppers from our very own EHS garden. They were all encouraged to try all the food and then decide if they liked them or not. The students learned about how fresh fruits and veggies are important to their nutrition and provides them with the energy they need for the day.
After feasting on the food the Pre-1sters took the remainder and their paper plates to the composting bin behind the Pre-1st classrooms. The Devon Farms Campus also has a composting pile that they are starting with Science teacher Anna Tuttle. The gardening and composting efforts are in-line with the school’s introduction of new organic foods in the cafeteria to help promote healthy eating on both campuses.
