The 2011 ESL Nutrition Program at Thistle Whistle is wrapping up next week. We covered a lot of material, both in and out of the garden. The group has come out to visit, learn and work on the farm ten times since May. Group size has varied from 43 to 11 individuals. Chrys has be a thoughtful and thorough nutrition teacher, bringing many ideas and healthy alternatives to the group. The fresh fruit sorbet being a favorite… yum! Before the participants leave the farm, they receive a bag of organic farm-grown produce to feed their families.
