La Vida Local is a feature aimed at connecting you with some of the best foods and goods within Vancouver while raising awareness of how buying local benefits everyone involved. When you buy local, you’re not just supporting these individuals but helping to grow and sustain the local community.
We wrapped up lesson 2 of Growing Chefs‘ Classroom Gardening and Cooking Program this week with my team’s grade 2 class. Here’s a recap of our first lesson in case you missed it. When we first walked into the class we were astounded at how much the garden had already grown! And really, I was relieved this amateur gardener (me) didn’t mess up! Before we tended to our gardens, we brought in some vegetables that we thought might stump the class.
