This July, FoodWIse participated in the first harvest celebration at the Keller Elementary School Food Garden. The garden is currently growing potato plants, radishes, beans, spinach, bok choy, tomatoes, and herbs. Some of the produce was distributed to Keller families and to House of Hope.

FoodWIse partnered with Danz Elementary School to provide Nutrition Education to 3rd graders. The curriculum offered had a garden-based approach where students learn about the parts of a plant and the nutrients that will help them stay healthy and strong. Students were able to learn about the six parts of the plant and taste at least one vegetable from each part of the plant. They were also able to plant beans and use hypotheses to see if they could figure out what would happen to the plant. A celery and water experiment was also done, and the kids had wonderful hypotheses on what would happen to the colored water.
