Potato Tasting

 

    Delicious!!!!!! This is the word that our students and faculty used to describe the potatoes our school cafeteria workers cooked from our school garden. Mrs. Jensen and her staff baked the potatoes with olive oil and seasoned them with French fry salt for a taste that stimulated our taste buds. The Danville Master Gardeners, Billy Holly and Dan Goble were there too. The Danville Master Gardeners helped Ms. King's, 1st grade class, plant the potatoes at the end of March and our 5th grade students harvested the potatoes when they came back to school in early August. This activity reinforces Glenwood's focus on eating healthy and learning about plant growth, culture, and sustainability.
