It has been a great start to the new Middle School subject, Kitchen Garden. Students have been enthusiastic about the creation of a veggie garden at the College, lining the new beds and filling them with soil, then planting and watering. They have learned how the gardens represent the interactions found in ecosystems and the requirements for growth. While waiting for plants to mature and be ready to use in the kitchen, we have been fortunate to have donations of produce from staff, parents and the wider community to create dishes with. Students have made carrot muffins and apple muffins, zucchini fritters and mini frittatas, tomato chutney and peach pastries.
If you have a garden at home with excess produce that you would like to donate, please contact me via Compass.
