Hi all, we hope you're enjoying the beautiful sunshine!
Just thought we'd put out a quick photo update on how our NJ garden is doing.
Our blueberries (left) and raspberries (right) are just
about ready to be harvested and frozen! These will
go so well in smoothies for the students next school year.
With the guidance and expertise of our absolutely amazing and innovative Foods teacher, Mark Frankish, the foods classes generally prepare meals for the whole school on a daily basis. Having this extra produce on hand not only saves our small school money in grocery shopping but more importantly, engages our at risk youth. This produce has been planted, cared for, harvested and cooked by our Norman Johnston students and this process teaches our students such valuable lessons in regards to sustainability, food security, and food preparation.
Happy gardening :)
