The pizza-garden wheat and “sauce veggies” are thriving thanks to a perfect mix of sun and rain this summer. “Stone soup” veggies are well on their way, along with sunflowers and other flowers. One new idea is to have students collect flower seeds, make seed packets, and sell as a fundraiser. Happy growing, everyone! – Kate Reimanis, Farm to School Coordinator, Newton School, Strafford, VT
