Sample of 2014/2015 Educational Programs completed at the Market or in the Classroom.
May 2015: "A Bee in the Hive Community".Our Market Beekeeper, Jim Foster, Meadowmont Farm brought his viewing hive and taught S.H. Catholic School Third, Fourth and Fifth Graders about the lives and many jobs of different bees In the hive.
January 2015: "Oaks and Acorns with the First People," with Fourth Grade Classrooms at St. Helena Elementary. This program was a blend of nature connection in an oak grove, storytelling, an informative slide show, and hands-on stations where kids pounded acorn into flour and made acorn biscuits.
December 2014: Students from St. Helena’s Pathway School and The Young School made these darling penguins with mini bottleneck gourds, with the help of their art teacher Stephanie Zuntz and Market Educator, Amanda Tuttle.
October 2014: “Food Day”.In solidarity with the Napa Valley’s chapter of “Food Day,” and gatherings all over America, Amanda Tuttle, presented a program discussing eating for color and season, and buying locally at the market with a savvy group of Third and Fourth graders from St. Helena's Catholic School. A Scavenger Hunt throughout the market followed the discussion with Market Educator, Amanda.
August/September 2014: Both at the market and at the St. Helena Public Library’s Bilingual Program: “Pajama Rama,” Amanda brought the Iroquois story of the “Three Sisters” to life with the oral tradition of storytelling. Kids explored dried and fresh garden beans and corn, through hands on play. At the St. Helena Library kids made Bean and Corn Art Medallions. Both groups at the market and at the library tried “Corn Confetti Custard” from the book “Blue Corn and Chocolate.
