Harvesting the Garden

Summer is over and activities at the Seed Savers school garden have been gearing up. On September 7th Stephen Greene went into the classroom to supervise the harvest of our potato crop with the 6th, 7th and 8th graders. Students learned that potatoes are tubers, not roots, and we got to see first hand what this looked like when we dug up 65 lbs. of organic potatoes from two raised beds.

Students also harvested a substantial load of heirloom tomatoes that were delivered to the school cafeteria, where Cook Patty was thrilled to receive them, and used them in the salad bar this past week.
