Field Trip!

We hosted our first field trip today – a lovely class of third-graders from Norton Elementary School. The students were divided into four groups that rotated through different stations. Our student leaders were partnered with a staff member or community volunteer to teach the students about our garden.

We finished up with a student-made kale salad (recipe later this week). It was a great start to our field trip program and an opportunity to involve even more Alachua County students in hands-on learning (and eating) at the Farm to School Hub.
