Yesterday was a beautiful day to work at Pernet’s garden site! Throughout the past couple weeks, the Youth Group has been preparing the raised beds and loosening up the soil for vegetable seedlings next week! We will be picking up our plants at the REC Spring Garden Festival and Plant Sale located at the Worcester City Hall Common this Saturday!
Check out the event page here, and be sure to stop by and say "Hi!" at the Pernet table!
Today, the Youth Group had its final Nutrition Class in partnership with the UMASS Extension Nutrition Education Program! We’ve learned about sugary drinks, food labels, fast food, and healthy breakfast options over the past four sessions, and made lots of delicious, healthy meals together! Here are some pictures of us making a Greek Salad Wrap!
During April vacation, the Youth Group went on an all-day field trip to Old Sturbridge Village, a living history museum depicting Rural New England during the early 19th century. Here are some photos from the cobblers shop and the working farm! The students had a lot of fun!
