Partying in the garden!

On October 20th and 27th, we held our fall garden parties at the MLK Middle School and Excelsior Middle School gardens! Both were loads of fun - students, teachers, and volunteers worked on garden projects such as planting, weeding, building bean teepees, and sheet mulching. We ended the parties by harvesting veggies and cooking lunch together!

At MLK students cooked up a peanut stir-fry and sunchoke salad, and at Excelsior we had cheese quesadillas and salsa fresca. At both events we made a delicious sun tea with lemons and herbs fresh from the garden. Yum!
Here are some photos of the events:
