Woodstock Union Middle High School started off the year with potato harvesting, seed saving, pesto and pickle making and more! Seventh grade science students are using the organisms in the garden to explore ‘what makes something alive?’. Students in the Locally Grown class have planted their first round of salad greens for the cafeteria, learned about the pros and cons of food processing, and are tackling the big issue of food waste. This year is off to a great start! – Kate Robbins, Place-based Education Coordinator, Woodstock Union Middle High School, Woodstock, VT
