Young people from North East Community Center visited Katchkie Farm for an experience at the farm and to learn something new! They toured the farm, picked vegetables from the garden, and prepared their own lunch. For lunch, they made summer vegetable & black bean burrito with pico de gallo and a side of summer cabbage slaw. For some, it was the first time to eat the vegetables they picked right from the farm. These vegetables include swiss chard and the summer squash. It was the first time for many things on this visit. Teens tried the edible flower, nasturtium and even learned how to properly hold a chicken!
In the city, the Sylvia Center is working on putting together a special video for the upcoming Art of Cooking Gala on November 1st. Over the weekend, a production crew came to capture young people cook live in the kitchen. The video is about the relationship between teens becoming student leaders and building a healthy community.
