What a great week for Farm to School!

What a week it's been! From fundraisers to field trips, taste tests to community nights we've been keeping busy! Last Sunday, we had a successful silent auction at the Skinny Pancake with all proceeds going to Farm to School for the 2016-2017 school year. We're still tallying up the total but we raised upwards of $300 for the program! We also visited our farm partners at VYCC with the kindergarteners where we seeded sunflowers, planted two apple trees, and journaled about baby chicks, rabbits, and cows! Check out the video Ms. Gilbar made here: RES Kindergarten visits VYCC. On Wednesday and Thursday we had taste tests at RES & CHMS featuring local greens from another farm partner, Jericho Settlers Farm and it was a hit with the students at both schools. Thanks to those who came out to the 3rd and 4th grade art & music night on Wednesday where we prepared some tasty snacks! We'll be back at it next week for the 1st and 2nd grade event so swing by and see us.
