This is the image for the news article titled Mackrille students harvest crops in teaching gardenStudents at Edith E. Mackrille Elementary School got a chance to see how produce from their teaching garden can be turned into tomato sauce and pesto in a cafeteria lesson Sept. 22 that included a taste test! They also harvested some tomatoes and peppers from the garden and were excited to see how much the plants had grown over the summer. The teaching garden was installed last year with help from the American Heart Association, which is aiming to teach youngsters about nutrition and healthy eating. The project also relates to part of the school's science curriculum that teaches about plants. Kudos to the Mackrille parent volunteers who helped take care of the garden this summer and assisted.
