Just before Thanksgiving break, it was harvest and tasting day at Fernbank Elementary! 700 students tasted greens harvested from their own school garden.
As usual, thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers, PE coaches, cafeteria staff and sponsors, we were able to pull off another successful school-wide tasting. Parent volunteers joined forces with the school cafeteria staff to wash, dry and cut the greens in preparation for the tasting. Whole Foods, Briarcliff donated lettuce, shredded carrot, cranberries and ingredients to make our fabulous salad dressing. Mix it all together and what do you get? Kids eating salad!
