Fresh from the garden into the school

We had an exciting day over here at Valleybound, the Antonito School and Community Garden! We sponsored today’s salad bar for K-12 at South Conejos Schools right here in Antonito, Colorado. It was wonderful seeing so many beautiful, green salads on the kids’  and teachers’ trays today. I am so proud of our community and children for coming together and creating such a magical space that promotes healthy lifestyles and community building.

After lunch, I was surprised by two classes in the elementary wing asking for a tour of the garden! So off we headed to the old rodeo grounds and explored the green, luscious garden. The students asked so many questions, admired the most beautiful sunflower in the universe, touched and gawked at the cute little pumpkin and calabacitas, and gathered around the fire pit asking when we’d be doing s’mores! This is the sort of experiential education that I love and am honored to be a part of. Here’s to a bright future!
