About the Program: 

We are a small Montessori school that recently started our lunch program with a focus on from-scratch recipes made with locally sourced produce. We have many raised bed gardens around the school. The students are able to harvest items for our salad bar when they are in season. Our goal is to start teaching our students through Garden and Kitchen curriculum. 

Our school’s mission statement is to light the flame of learning to achieve a lifetime of success. We believe that lunch time is an extension of the classroom and an opportunity for our students to learn about nutrition and ways to cook fresh fruits and vegetables  from the garden.
