Event Type: 

Sample new foods, learn about foods that are in season, and learn about how fruits and veggies grow. Local foods that we’ll cover over 4 weeks include:
• Pea Shoots – learning about sprouts and foods that you can grow on your windowsill. We will provide a tasting and also send the kids home with a kit to grow their own.
Strawberries – tasting homegrown vs. store-bought strawberries. And we will make a fruit salsa with cinnamon chips.
• Kohlrabi – kids will learn about this unique vegetable, how to prepare it and they will also taste it.
• Potato – we will bring pots of potato plants and the students will be able to see how potatoes grow and harvest. They will also taste the new potatoes and compare them to the taste/texture of store-bought potatoes.
