I joined Nicole Effle from Lincoln Community Crops and Dawes Middle School students as they harvested from their school garden. They had grown radishes, spinach, kale, lettuce and chives, in just a few weeks!
We spiralized zucchini, and added our harvested greens to our wraps with hummus, guacamole, grated carrots, diced chicken, grated cheese and black beans. A few of the kids were skeptical, but came around as the rest began enjoying bite after bite. Next week I go to Mickle Middle School to join the Urban Farmers and YMCA CLC Cooking class. Thank you to the Hy-Vee One Step Grant for making funds available.
As a part of Hy-Vee’s mission to make lives easier, healthier and happier, Hy-Vee began the One Step program to fund projects worldwide. Everyday products donate a portion of those proceeds to worthy causes. One Step Russet Potatoes proceeds go to support community gardens and teaches good nutrition and cooking to partners.
