A time to reflect...

While it is the beginning of the summer growing season, for most schools, it’s the end of another learning season. After spending the past eight months at school,  students ’round the province are heading into a golden summer.  But for Think & Eat Green schools, the end of the year is an opportunity to reflect on the activies and development that occured in and around their school gardens and kitchens. And fortunately for us, all that reflection is displayed in 12 beautiful posters created by each school!

Check out our post for more photos and a slideshow of all the posters!

That's up to the students... “…[instead of making salads] most [students] keep their vegetables carefully, almost obsessively, segregated on their green plastic trays and consume each item — kale, carrot, apple and sunflower seeds — in turn.” Read the full article here!
