Check out these photos from Prairie Height's school garden! The science teacher integrated gardening into the curriculum, and now the school has a dedicated gar...dening course. Last week, we taught a Chef in the Classroom course about the benefits of Swiss Chard. Swiss chard was harvested, washed, and refrigerated a few days prior. Students sampled chard two ways - in a fresh salad with strawberries, apples, and dressing made by the students, and cooked in a skillet with heart healthy olive oil. They students LOVED it! More pictures to come.
