Natalie Meyers, one of the animators of this exciting new program working at Nelson Mandela Park PS shares this:
“We had a wonderful second session of Cook and Grow on Thursday! We made healthy pizzas and a big salad with kale, spinach, carrots, tomatillos, basil and nasturtiums that the kids harvested from the garden. Once again, thank you so much to everyone who made our second session such a success! We had two wonderful newcomers to the program, Kate, a volunteer from Green Thumbs who worked with Karrin in the garden, and Cindy subbed in for Lily in the kitchen this week (and provided these great photos!). Next week the kids want to make sushi so we’re looking forward to that!”

Thanks to the all wonderful educators involved in this project: Karrin Huynh, Charmyne Urquhart, Natalie Meyers, Lily Hu, Cindy Fung, teachers Hotho Farah and Becky Zaimi. We also look forward to learning about Tower gardens and starting some indoor growing at Nelson Mandela Park PS!
