From seed to burger...the incredible journey! Keeping kids fingers dirty in the schoolyard!
Project Pickle is a Backyard Cooperative partnership with the Delta School District , and Kwantlen University
Peas are constantly battling carrots for the top first crop picks from the young Project Pickle Farmers.
When we can't be outside to talk about what we want to grow we do it inside by reading seed charts which is not the easiest thing to do for the young kids. They do grasp the concept though.

There are still a few crops growing at the school farms but I have pulled the last of my backyard peppers.
A chilly day but these young farmers were up to the compoating challenge!
50 young farmers were checking on their beds this afternoon. Timing was perfect as the downpour subsided. Each bed is under the care of 10 kids.
I kinda miss the sun and Tee- Shirts but they will both be back soon enough.
The Farm Roots kids have been busy! They are now offering this lovely collection of hand crafted goodies for Christmas festivities.
We are going to try to get a few more of thgese in by the end of the year so that the kids can sample what they are going to plant. It's also a good excuse to eat some veggies!
