The 5th and 6th grade classes visited Cascadian Farm, where they harvested pumpkins and learned about the process of composting.
Mr. Hamilton’s 4th grade class visited Ovenell’s Double O Ranch and learned about raising grass-fed beef cattle. They also got to feed and make friends with the ranch’s Maine-Anjou cattle and Shire horses!
Farm to School partnered with the PTO and Mr. Bianchini to provide a delicious, free meal at the Pumpkin Fun Run. The menu featured vegetarian chili, purple cornbread (corn meal ground from purple corn by summer campers!) and roasted apples and squash. Recipes are available under “2015-16 Harvest of the Month Recipes“.
