2012 Healthy On The Hill Sept 27
Pine Hill students love their new vegetable garden! This story was shared with us by Kate Taylor, Director of Pine Hill's Extended Day program:
I had three [students] who helped me pick herbs again last week. Before we went outside, Mrs. Carnes (kitchen manager) told the girls that the chicken that was served for lunch the day before had the herbs in it that they had picked the week before. The girls were SO excited! When we went outside ... the teachers and staff were walking to enter school [and] the girls asked the adults if they had eaten the school lunch the day before. When the adult answered and asked why, the girls VERY PROUDLY told the adult that they had picked the herbs used in the chicken. Thank you so much for helping to spark a flame in these girls! They were literally squealing with excitement as they gave Judy the new batch of herbs.
