This is our fourth year working with the Hotchkiss K8 1st grade classes. This year we seeded something a little different. We used some of the seeds that kids saved last fall and also some paste varieties (Amish and San Marzano). This season the plants will be rooted in the Sauce Plot, and the fruit will be grown and processed by kids for Kids’ Pasta Project community fund raising dinners.
Tomato Seeding 2011!
Another project we are starting at Thistle Whistle Farm is a partnership with the Family Literacy Program in Delta. We do not have a name for this one yet, but our objective is introduce and educate 30 families on nutrition, and better eating habits with farm fresh produce.
