Stoddert’s First Harvest–More Kale Please! June 12, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — stoddertgarden @ 7:10 PM

On Tuesday, students in grades 3-5 took park in Stoddert’s first harvest of lettuce, kale, chard and spinach.  A harvest party was planned by parents, Martha Rebour, a holistic health counselor and  Eliza Gonzalez, a professional chef.  Each class went out for one hour and learned how to pick and wash greens, make several types of dressings with herbs from the garden and fill out a Stoddert Garden triva challenge. After students prepared the dressings and greens each class sat down at the tables and enjoyed dipping their greens into the different kinds of dressings.  All the teachers and students agreed that it was a successful event!  I even overhead one student asking, “Can I have more kale?”  Now, that’s something you don’t hear enough at the dinner table!
