This November, CGCF Youth Coordinator Elizabeth visited 6 area elementary schools to engage students in an interactive lesson about the parts of a plant. Students learned that there are 6 parts of a plant, and we can eat them all!

As the harvest season winds down, two ingredients we still have plenty of are cabbage and basil. High in vitamins K and C, cabbage can also lower cholesterol. Basil offers vitamin K, iron, and calcium. While these ingredients are not often paired, their different flavors can complement each other nicely! Check out the recipe below for one way to prepare them.

As the weather gets colder, the harvest season of our farm is winding down. But we still have kale! Kale is a low-calorie, nutrient-rich food, and can provide cholesterol lowering and cancer protection benefits. One serving of kale has more than your daily value of vitamins A, C, and K. One easy and delicious way to add kale to your diet is by making kale chips! Check out the recipe below:
