Spring Feast in Upper-El

Last Friday the Upper-Elementary gardening students dove into culinary action as they prepared a Spring Feast from all of the freshly harvested goodies. They prepared a soup, herbal tea, a salad, and strawberry shortbread on homemade biscuits. Carrots, leeks, turnips, lettuce, fava beans, sugar snap pea’s, collards, radishes, mint, and strawberries were all on the harvest list! It was wonderful to see the beauty and variety that the gardens offer this time of year and the kids literally reaped the fruits of their labor on this festive occasion! Hip-hip-Hoorah for gardening and for Spring!
