We had a great crop of potatoes this year and the Green School Committee decided they would like them baked.  They were very popular throughout the entire school.

Last Spring, with the help of Darragh’s Mum, we planted potatoes, carrots, onions and strawberries in our raised beds.  Chris dug up the potatoes and carrots this November. Ms. Jordan made carrot sticks and baked potatoes for us.  Everyone tried some and found our school grown produce delicious.
