Going all veggie crazy? Recipes for the cafeteria
We've started a recipe collection. Most of those we've found are oriented to the family table, but your school chef is probably up to the task of scaling them up for the cafeteria.

Why not start this week? There are lots of ways to include students in meal planning. A web search on student meal planning will start you off right.

MA school's greenhouse a hit with pupils
Gardening Is best appreciated if you start young. Which of us was not thrilled by pulling up our first carrot?

The Waldorf School of Cape Cod has started a gardening program for its pupils. They have built 24 x 48 feet hoop house to be the central point of the whole thing. Here, the children, together with the grown-ups plant and harvest carrots, spinach, kale and other vegetables. In the process, they all learn the benefits of growing your own greens and the process that it takes for a seed to become a full-grown piece of edible food!

Of course our own preference is for soilless cultivation, but hey, let a hundred flowers—or carrots—bloom!
