“I want to make my OWN snack Ms.Alexys!”

Students at Gardner-now 3 years into garden classes, are well versed in the origins of food. They have learned to identify many plants, when to harvest, how to harvest, and they Love to make their own snacks. Last week, we discussed the importance of eating a variety of foods for balance, and they made a variety of foods for each other in class: avocado dip, 2 kinds of hummus, and a watermelon-mint salad. We used herbs and spices from our garden.
