Students have also had a chance to explore our own backyard here at the Cook Arts Center. When the sun was shining, participants tested their green thumbs: together, we pulled weeds, planted seeds and learned about some of the different things that it takes to have a successful garden.
Students also had a chance to harvest some of the crops that grew up from last year like rhubarb and mint. Next week students will learn a rhubarb smoothie recipe with our YMCA Heatlth and Nutrition instructor, and they will be using rhubarb straight from the Cook Arts Center garden. Yum!
