Ms. Blume brought hummus and pita bread along with fresh vegetables and fruits. The students were encouraged to make edible art with the foods items using skewers, hummus “glue” and heaps of creativity. Their creations were as impressive as they were delicious.
Ms. Blume also brought along Ann Marie the Sprout Lady. A former elementary school teacher,
Ann Marie entertained the students with a quick lesson on and tasting of micro-greens, showing how easy they are to grow, and explaining their nutrient-dense benefit. She then allowed each student to choose to grow either pea sprouts or sunflower sprouts for a take-home micro-green mini-garden. After only a few days of simple watering there were delicious sprouts to nosh on.
What could be easier?!
The visit of both Ms. Blume and The Sprout Lady brought a little sunshine into our February with the taste of all the fresh Spring vegetables and outdoor fun soon to come.
