This week at West Vernon Elementary, we wrapped up our winter rotation. The students harvested what was ready from the garden which included broccoli, collard greens, cauliflower, purple beans, snap peas, chard, carrots and kale!
We made some vegetarian tacos, using collard greens as the “tortilla” and each student was able to help make and prepare the filling. Each group was assigned a task, such as separating the kale leaves from the stalk, tearing the cauliflower into small pieces, harvesting the snap peas and purple bush beans and of course, mixing it all together!
The students enjoyed the “tacos” so much they even asked for seconds! To finish the class, we also tried a new combination of flavors: Mint and Apple – it was a HUGE success!
