We began our program at Francine Delany New School for Children in the spring of 2014. We now work with all students, Kindergarten through 8th grade. We have learned about all kinds of new foods, including lots of fresh vegetables. We have special gardens all over the FDNSC campus, including a Kinder –garden, a Folk Art Garden, a pollinator garden for Monarch Butterflies, and many other small plantings outside different classrooms.
We are with the students once a week and are able to connect the food and gardening lessons back to the classroom. Our students are so excited each week for FEAST class and have opened their minds to tasting and trying new things.
