Harvesting for Home at Hollenbeck Middle School

As our fall crops continue growing at Hollenbeck Middle School, several students were able to take garden vegetables home this week. The one rule: report back how you or your family cooked and ate your veggies.  A few students already knew that they wanted to use their hot peppers for salsa or homemade tacos, but we will have to wait until next week to find out what became of the japanese eggplant. By then, a few of our young butternut squash might even be ready to make the journey to an excited student’s kitchen!
