in the gardenThe last few weeks, children have been harvesting sun-ripened fruits, vegetables and  fragrant herbs from the Loring Schoolyard Garden.  With this produce, children 4 to 13 years old worked together making pickles, chutney, pesto and mustard getting ready for tomorrows' schoolyard fair.  Berries have been picked and tomorrow morning  friends and neighbors are baking pies for the Kids Cook Pie Auction!

Tomorrow, August 16th we celebrate in the garden with a Schoolyard Fair and Potluck Picnic.  The fair begins at 5:00 and rain or shine we will have garden tours, market basket exhibits and good things to eat!

Throughout the evening we will play games in the schoolyard while our neighbors play the cello and flute in the vegetable garden.  Children will display and market fresh picked vegetables and sell their preserves.

After supper, fruit pies will go up for auction.  This is our last picnic of the
season so join us at the fair!  If you are unable to attend, start the bid to
support Kids Cook Classroom.
