This week we talked about community supported agriculture (CSA) and used everything out of an Eatwell Farm CSA box to make a stir-fry. We watched a short film from The Lexicon of Sustainability and PBS Food highlighting the benefits of the CSA model. Then, we got to chopping! Two items in the box were not typical ingredients in a Chinese stir-fry: lemons and grapefruits. Never mind, it turns out lemon zest brightens the flavors of anything you’re cooking and freshly squeezed grapefruit juice makes a delicious marinade for tofu when paired with soy sauce and sesame oil.
We truly had a great time. Special thanks to our tireless parent volunteers Ms. Rikke and Ms. Catherine, and to Ms. Aurelie for taking beautiful photos of class in action.
We hope to partner with Eatwell Farm for an event in the spring. Stay tuned!
