New murals in the La Fe Prep. School Garden!

Mr. Lawler, former principal of Loma Linda Elementary, was one of our earliest champions of Edible Education as the first school we partnered with back in 2011. His willingness and commitment to transform an empty courtyard into a vibrant school garden with veggie beds, pollinator beds, and fruit trees is an enduring legacy that will be enjoyed for generations. We are grateful he gave us this opportunity and continue to do this work in his honor. A special thank you to all the dedicated administrators working to improve their school communities! #EdibleEducation #GISD #GrowingGood #FoodCorps

Seed to table event at Conlee, featuring some student made garden produce fresh stir fried rice. #lasemilla #edibleeducation #stirfry #garden #cooking #vegetables

Seed to Table event at Conlee Elementary last Friday went very well. Teachers and students harvested pounds of beets , carrots, lettuce, artichokes and broccoli from their garden. The students and teachers then made spring rolls, a citrus beet salad, stir fried rice, steamed artichokes and chimichurri. So amazing to see so much produce come out of one garden, and to be used or taken home by the students and staff is equally awesome. No food went to waste , and bags of carrots, beers and lettuce went home with the students and family. #seedtotable #lasemilla #edibleeducation #gardening #garden #beets #carrots #artichoke #lettuce #springrolls #friedrice #salad #classroomcooking

Today multiple classes came out to help fill the garden beds and plant fruit trees at Doña Ana Elementary today. 6 full beds and 6 apple and apricot trees planted all by the hands of the elementary students. Great work today, the future is looking nutritious and tastier at this school. #lasemilla #edibleeducation #foodcorps #garden #schoolgarden #outdoorclassroom #kidsinthegarden #vegetables #fruit #trees @jhodge451
