Summer Days Lunch in the Garden
Our Summer Days in Loring Schoolyard Garden began on Monday.  The garden was filled with children laughing and learning, harvesting and cooking, and eating lots of good food.  We picked buckets of cherries and ate handfuls of raspberries in the orchard.  Children harvested spinach and lettuce, radish and peas, mint, cilantro and basil.  Thirty five children rolled these crisp, crunchy garden ingredients into spring rolls for lunch. After lunch children went fishing, planted seeds, and "made art" inspired by the herbs that grow in the garden.
We invite you to join Kids Cook for a picnic, class or workshop at Loring.  Each day we learn, observe and reflect in the garden, kitchen and around the table.

Happy summer,
Robin

We invite your family to Loring Schoolyard Garden for a potluck picnic.  Kids Cook Classroom volunteers will prepare salads, relishes and slaws from the garden produce.  We'll provide the plates and table service.  You bring your smile and a seasonal dish to share.

We'll gather at the community table for nourishment, conversation and friendship.  Join us on Sunday from 5:00 until 8:00.
