Last Thursday, Anneliese hosted a special Farmer's Market for the youngest members of the school to raise money for their blossoming garden programs. Several preschool and nursery classes helped to prepare for the market by harvesting organic produce and herbs from the Willowbrook Garden. Ms. Kumiko led a group to pick purple potatoes, fava beans, snap peas, watercress, radishes, and turnips; Ms. Alma and Ms. Jasmine's students gathered a variety of herbs such as sage, mint, lavender, oregano, and rosemary; and Ms. Morgan brought the nursery kids to harvest more herbs as well as flowers to make beautiful bouquets! In addition to these fresh goodies, we sold small watering cans, shovels, and organic seed packs for parents to purchase and donate back to their child's class to use during upcoming garden projects. Overall, the market was a great success, thanks to all of the support from our families, teachers, and staff!
