The long awaited day has arrived!!!Today the Edible Peace Patch was bustling with energy, from excited students to local news crews. We harvested turnips, tomatoes, broccoli, squash, zucchini, beets, carrots, and about twenty potatoes! Everything is going to be put to use for our Harvest Festival tomorrow, whether in dishes Eckerd Students prepare or on display for everyone to see. Today was the culmination of all the time, sweat, and effort put into the garden by everyone involved, it was miraculous. Finally seeing all the seeds we planted evolve into edible treats was truly amazing. Tomorrow is the Harvest Festival at Lakewood Elementary and we can't wait to celebrate the fruits of our labor with the entire school.
