Garden and Recycling Coordinators Workshop: On February 12th Davis Farm to School Connection hosted a mini-workshop at Pioneer Elementary for all the Garden and Recycling Coordinators in the district. The Compost Curriculum workshop included close encounters with worms to engage students in science and language arts lessons. The Garden Crafts for School Garden Fundraising workshop featured rosemary wreath making – turning school landscape plants into income for the gardens. Davis Farm to School Connection hosts these meetings three times a year for all Garden and Recycle Coordinators. The next meeting will be on Thursday, May 7th at North Davis Elementary.
New School Cooking Classes: Davis Farm to School recently gained a Nutrition intern from Sacramento State University. Sara will be piloting cooking classes at elementary schools in Davis, using seasonal produce. Her first cooking lesson with a second grade class at Montgomery Elementary made Broccoli with Cheese Sauce, and it was a big hit. Over 75% of the class gave the recipe a thumbs up!
