Here is a sample of the Educational Programs completed at the market or in the Classrooms.
August/September 2014: 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.
May 2014: "Earth Day Every Day". Featuring story, poetry and song and celebrating our one planet.
May 2014: "Herb Thyme". Kids opened their senses to fresh and dried herbs and created a herb sachet to take home.
October 2013: "Apples at School". Amanda visted The Young School to conduct a program celebrating apples! Students listened to a story that captured their imagination, tasted apples and then made Apple Paninis! Here's the pdflogosmallrecipe from one of the students.
October 2013: "Colorful Choices". St. Helena Elementary Students shopped for color at the market and then met up with Amanda for a lesson on nutrition.
Fall 2013: "Seed Art". Stephanie Zuntz, Art through Earth Sciences Teacher and Amanda led students from the Pathways Charter School to make homemade plant-able cards (tomato, eggplant and carrot), embedded with seeds, and made Seed Art Trees with naturally colored pumpkin seeds.
