The past 2 weeks have flown by! Here are some highlights since our last time chattin’…
We had the privilege to visit the the farm and see all of the work that goes on behind the scenes before they attend different farmers’ markets and such. We polished trays and trays of tomatoes, and also picked some veggies out in the sheltered gardens. The snack break was great too: tasting each and every jam that they sell, some more than twice…

School Garden with WME:
I was able to travel out to the West Monona School Garden, and help lead a lesson with Katelyn (horticulture specialist at Woodbury) with some kids. I help them plant some seeds in the garden, and let them sample some cucumbers and radishes that we harvested for our office’s teaching garden. They also had a herb sniffing lesson as well!

Kids in the Kitchen
We all had the opportunity to lead the Kids in the Kitchen camp this Thursday. It was so much fun teaching the kid many lessons including : knife skills, hand washing, and planting! It was a great way to also teach the kids how to make simple snacks using fresh fruits and vegetables.
