Selling the Harvest to mom and dad

By BYCOOP admin - Posted on 14 November 2013

Mrs. Morrow's grade 3 kids harvest and package the second last batch of Arugula and Beets for  Project Pickle and Delta School District's "Green for Greens " program. The bags of fresh produce are sold directly to the parents and caregivers of the children and up on the dinner plate. The proceeds from this marketing effort go right back to the school to invest in school neighbourhood farm equipment and improvements. Talk about eating local!!

Had some in our salad last nigfht. Deliciously spicy!

Got a nice big bag of beets for $7 money well spent to support the kids and they were fresh and local. Nothing wrong with putting money back to keep the children engaged in this wondervul program
