Mr. Lewis’s Grade 4 class examines and plants various vegetable seeds.
Chefs from restaurants in London volunteer their time to teach students how to grow, maintain and harvest a vegetable garden and then to prepare the food using healthy recipes.
The program starts in April of each year with a visit by a team that includes a volunteer, a restaurant chef, and the organization’s executive director. The team works with a selected class, planting fruits and vegetables, and providing curriculum-based lessons.
Three months later, the chefs return to the school and help students cook and create a delicious meal from the vegetables they have grown. In addition to a great meal, the students also receive a certificate of participation and a recipe book.
Teacher Bill Lewis and learning support teacher, Catherine Liokossis, are grateful to Growing Chefs and sponsor Libro Financial Group for the learning opportunity they provided White Oaks students.
