Harvest Meal Compliments of our Garden and Food Corps Volunteer

Yesterday the 4th-6th (and Kindergarten) students at Northside Elementary and our Food Corps Volunteer  Monica Drazba spent the whole day harvesting from the garden, making a large salad, and prepping the butternut squash pieces for the Harvest Feast. We aimed to serve over 300+ people today!

The salad was made with over 20 pounds of fresh ingredients from the garden. We used kale, arugula, lettuce, mustard greens, chard, broccoli, radish, sage, parsley, and rosemary! We also used over 20 pounds of butternut squash that was grown in the 6th grade raised bed. There are about 60 more pounds of butternut squash to use, so maybe we'll be doing this again in the next few weeks :)


 The photos do a much better job describing what the day looked like. It was a little hectic, but very very rewarding!

Northside Students and Social Action!
