10.26.2023 Herbalicious Popcorn Garden Lessons • Thanks to Trane
|Herbalicious Popcorn & Caring Work|
The amazing herb flavored popcorn students sampled in their second garden lesson of the season was a hit! While doing an herb scavenger hunt in the garden we learned all about the differences between the fresh herbs growing in the garden and spices used to flavor foods. Then we mixed up a batch of herb flavored popcorn. It was possibly the most popular garden taste test yet. You can find the herbalicious popcorn and other garden recipes on our website: GROWLaCrosse.org/tasty-tips/
In the third and final garden lesson we discuss MyPlate and how to create a balanced diet before spending time doing the caring work needed to put the gardens to bed for the winter months. This work is the first step for a successful growing season next year. We are also harvesting the last of the garden goodness for this season. State Road 4th graders had fun harvesting the large pumpkins grown in their garden.
Special Thanks to Trane Technologies. This is the first year Trane joined the ranks of GROW corporate sponsors.
