LOCAL Butternut Squash for the Harvest Feast THURSDAY 11/8!
1,000 pounds of Butternut Squash Harvested by
Project LEAP 6th Grade FHTMS students
for the Annual Harvest Feast 11/8!**
**11/8 for Marcotte, Chamberlin, Orchard and FHTMS; 11/7 for SBHS
Project LEAP students at The Farm at South Village in South Burlington, VT where they harvested squash for SB Nutritional Services!
The squash was collected and carted out of the field by these strong 6th grade students
What a beautiful day to get outside!
Students also worked in teams to learn how to plant garlic. The garlic will stay dormant during the winter, sprout in the spring, and be harvested next July. Some students even tasted the raw cloves of garlic!
We also harvested some lingering carrots to make room for more garlic planting
Thanks to Project LEAP for coming out to harvest butternut squash and do some garlic planting!
SB Nutritional Services processed 1000 pounds of butternut squash for the District Harvest Meal in all 5 South Burlington Schools! We look forward to seeing you there and tasting this fresh, local dish.

Blueberry planting at RMCS!
On Monday, September 10th, with the help of a few generous parents at RMCS, 9 blueberry bushes were planted next to the garden beds in the courtyard! 4 different classes came out to see what was going on, and many students got to spend some time in the garden and harvest a few things. We had a blast!
Aiden's cucumber harvest!
Great times in the RMCS garden, and more to come.
