Earthbites’ Students Are Busy Exploring Spring Greens

Prior to spring break the EarthBites team were busy exploring pollination.  Students enjoyed creating honey bee bites with oats, honey, raisins & olive oil.  Students also experimented with growing lots of seedlings that will be planted in the beds during this Session.
EarthBites current session focuses on delicious and nutritious Spring Greens.
Your RHN (Registered Holistic Nutritionist) is exploring with students & teachers the cleansing benefits of WILD & FARMED Spring Greens. Primaries will be creating a no-nut Gomae snack using Spring Greens & explore the health benefits of three minerals found in spring greens. Intermediate students will be helping to create a Spring Greens salad and exploring the health benefits of vitamins found in spring greens. See all the Springy Goodness Here!
Your urban farmer is helping students plant the Spring Greens & herb seedlings they started in the Spring break.  They will also amend the soil with a rich Veggie Compost, plant seeds like peas, radish, carrot and beets and plant potatoes.
Students will be hosting a Spring Market on Thursday May 4th where they will be selling Spring greens.  Look out for your pre-order form through email.
Stay tuned for details of our upcoming adventures in summer gardening.


EarthBites is a non-profit organization.  We collaborate with schools to fully utilize their gardens as outdoor classrooms.  We are a team of urban farmers & nutritionists educating students & teachers how to grow & preserve their own food, create seasonal snacks & run their own markets.  Follow our stories on facebook.com/earthbites.
