Garden to Cafeteria Day November 20, 2013:

Amazing effort from volunteers and staff.  Hard work from first grade farmers and their teachers and families. Delicious menu--roasted carrots, beets, and Brussels sprouts; chunky apple sauce; BNS raised greens and radishes; raw apples.  A great time for everyone.

"Thank you farmers.  Thank you cooks.  Bon appetit."

First Grade Farmers Work Through the Cold Weather

Since the very beginning of the school year, BNS first graders have been farming at BNS Farms.
Under cover of the plastic hoop house, crops continued to grow despite the frost.

 All of their hard work resulted in an abundant harvest of lettuce, radishes, and arugula.
