Students Enjoy Stir-Fry!
After several months of anticipation and tender loving care, third graders braved the cold weather to harvest the vegetables grown in their organic garden to make a delicious lunch of stir-fry! The students planted seeds and smaller plants at the beginning of the school year and spent ongoing class time monitoring and studying the plant growth and now they are able to see what all their hard work has produced! The vegetables harvested included carrots, cabbage, swiss chard, snow peas, brussel sprouts and much more! After harvesting, the students sliced and diced the freshly picked vegetables to cook up a large batch of stir-fry. Following the preparation, the food scraps were taken directly out to the compost bin, where they will be used to make chicken feed. In keeping with the schools mission of being environmentally aware, the students not only enjoyed a tasty lunch, but they also learned the value of cutting waste and giving back to the earth.
