Sage

One of the schools has a gigantic sage plant that we have been diligently harvesting for a couple of years. The kids take some home for Turkey dinners at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Just before Christmas the kids willl have the opportunity to sample some of the veggies they will be growing in the spring.

I think there needs to be an early entry culinary component to our curriculum. The learners love to talk about food and what they are eating at home. Unfortunately, there is still lots of evidence that kids aren't getting the complete diet that they need. One thing is for sure, if they grow it they will eat it.

One of the lessons that we teach the young kids is what the value of crops are. A giant sage bush such as this would likely yeild several hundred dollars if sold in a farmers market environment.
