Gardening and Cooking Education at MAM
It’s harvest season in the Maryland Avenue gardens and this fall Lower Elementary classrooms harvested more than 13 pounds of tomatoes from one 6X4 foot raised bed! Children made and enjoyed panzanella with their harvest. Many tomato loving converts were made by having a positive experience gardening and cooking! In addition to the culinary and harvesting experience, kids were also asked to do math problems like, “If we harvested 13 pounds of tomatoes from 6 plants, how many pounds did each plant produce?" The Fund is proud to support this programming at our school!
