From Garden To Table
See the ginger, have a sip of ginger juice, taste pickled ginger.
See the sugar cane, taste sugar cane juice and a pinch of sugar.
See the mushrooms, taste a raw mushroom slice.
See the broccoli, taste broccoli sprouts and steamed florets.
See the beets with their purple leaves, taste boiled, chopped beets and watch your tongue turn red.
See the carrots with their green leaves, taste carrot sticks and crinkle-cut carrot slices.
It was a tremendous success. Many kids watched but never tasted anything but many more stepped up for second helpings on beets, mushrooms, broccoli and carrots. Thanks to a wonderful preschool, the teachers who organized the event, the parents who volunteered their time and energy and of course the students who stepped up and tasted fresh veggies.
