What busy bees we have been in the garden in the last two weeks. Classes have mulched garden beds, planted LOTS of marigold seedlings into the adopt a garden beds and planted out vegetable beds with beetroot, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, onions and snow peas. We are hoping that we have some produce to enter into the Maleny show this year to showcase our KG program and GCCC.
The cooks made a super healthy tomato and vegetable soup using lots of greens from the garden and some of our tomatoes. The soup had the enticing addition of teddy bear pasta and crusty bread which proved irresistible to most of our hungry tummies.
Next Thursday (22 May) please join us in the Junior Undercover Area for the Biggest Morning Tea; proudly hosted by the KG team. We will kick off at 8.30 am and be there until 10.30ish. If you are able to bake a cake or a batch of biscuits/slice for the event please let me know.
Until next fortnight,
Happy cooking and gardening.
Mandy Ward, Kitchen Garden Coordinator
