The summer camp students designed a series of collages and drawings of what they saw and experienced in the garden, they used traditional and digital media to create their pieces.
The following are some the kid’s observations:
“Today I am so excited because we actually got to make a quinoa salad. First, we were taught that quinoa comes to Peru and Bolivia. Then we went downstairs and got to harvest some of the ingredients that we are using to add to the quinoa. After we went to the kitchen and started. First, we chopped up the chives, then shredded the parsley and chopped the peppers. Last was the avocado. While we were chopping Ms. Fabiola was cooking the quinoa. We used a big tray to put the lettuce on the sides of the tray. Then we poured the quinoa and added the parsley, sweet peppers and avocado. Then we ate the delicious quinoa and stuffed ourselves.”
“What I did today is to harvest chives and parsley. Then we added the quinoa, avocado, red peppers, chives, and lettuce. We added strawberry vinaigrette, salt, and olive oil. I thought it tasted awesome.”
