Garden Smoothies

A big thanks to the VEGA health foods volunteers that came out and joined us at our Garden 2 Plate youth program this past week. With their help we were able to build a new garden bed and plant blueberry bushes, expanding our vision to plant many more indigenous berry bushes.

We also tried some VEGA smoothies adding gooseberries, currents, spinach, kale, pursalane and beets from the garden. Justin, one of our youth participants treated us to a variety of great tasting smoothies.

And at all our Garden 2 Plate workdays we are treated to a fantastic lunch prepared by our professional chef Anna Bell. The youth have an opportunity to prepare great tasting food, using ingredients and veggies picked fresh from the garden. This week included sautéed collard, green salad with fresh green beans, spaghetti and meatballs, and egg frittata.
