One of our staple recipes is homemade pesto sauce. We use basil, parsley, cilantro, kale, or spinach. This summer we made a basil pesto sauce kindly donated by Gotham Greens, a worldwide pioneer in hydroponic agriculture using clean energy. #GothamGrows has been one of our sponsors for some years now supplying greens and herbs seedlings to our gardens. Today’s basil was harvested by our community children at the St. John’s GardenKitchen Lab station with the guidance of Dianne Bliffeld, a new Board of Education instructor.
