Growing Broccoli

Students completed their first full Garden-Kitchen-Lab lesson today by harvesting twelve super big broccolis! The children took all broccolis to the kitchen, chopped the stems and leaves off and added them to a large pan of steaming water. Three minutes later, the kids were enjoying steamed broccoli with olive oil and salt. All twelve broccolis were eaten that morning! The kids completed a quiz about the growing, harvesting, and preparing the recipe along with learning the benefits of eating broccoli. A successful lesson.
