Guests for Lunch

posted by Tracy Hayslip

On Wednesday Miss Storer and Mrs. Brita's classes hosted a meal for Tall Pines and The Birches. The students have been learning in the garden since the fall, saving herbs and seeds and learning how to cook. For the meal, the students sent invitations, chopped vegetables for a vegetable herb soup, shaped bread rolls, and made tables arrangements to make the space nice. They even made thank you cards for the folks who came. 

Special thanks to all the passionate students, the dedicated teachers, staff, administrators, and our FoodCorps service member who made this meal possible!
