Thanks to Jennifer Whyte and the TMA Produce Sales team, Kindergarten classes got to experience tasty treats for the first time, during Thursday’s S.K.I.P. after-school program. It didn’t take long for students to learn that enthusiasm, excellence and extra effort during monthly garden visits earned Greenbucks, which they could use to pay for healthy snacks prepared by our volunteers. Snack-sized portions of pumpkin bread, baked with real cooked pumpkin from our garden, beet and kale smoothies and frozen lemon pops and beet brownies made an appearance once a month. Our kinders gained an appreciation for the produce they grew throughout the year and learned how tasty eating healthy can be. Students who have Greenbucks left from this year are encouraged to bring them to use at next year’s produce sale.
