The Garden Stand at Deer Creek School (and others) is OPEN for business! Last week I popped over to the school to see the stand first hand and snap some photos of it. It is downright adorable, stocked with fruits and veggies from The Food Love Farm as well as items that students brought from their own gardens.
Garden stand coordinator, Sydney Joyce told me about the first day and how it all went, “The kids helped in the morning to set up the stand (filling the bags with veggies, placing and filling the baskets) and promote it by shouting to everyone “fresh veggies, be sure to eat your veggies, come get some here”, they started this on their own and had a great time.”
Signs are in the making for next week, so be on the look out or better yet, make a special trip to Deer Creek and grab a bag of veggies and support the school’s enrichment programs!
